first_imgThe former batsman said that Kohli also should be lauded The former batsman said that Kohli also should be lauded for keeping his calm in tense situations. “When you see him during fielding, look how animated he is. But with the bat, he is a completely different personality. He is very composed, doesnt let any emotions come in the way,” he pointed out. Apart from Kohli, Gavaskar lauded skipper Dhoni for using his resources well. Dhoni managed to surprise the Australians by bowling Yuvraj Singh, whose part-time left-arm spin got India the crucial wicket of rival captain Steve Smith last night. “Dhoni reads what the oppositions strengths are. He realised that Raina could be expensive against Australia because he doesnt turn the ball much. This pitch wasnt affording turn. Thats why he brought Yuvraj. So reading the oppositions strengths is what the captains need to do and Dhoni does it better than most,” he said. Also getting Gavaskars praise was veteran pacer Ashish Nehra. Gavaskar felt Nehra has managed to ensure that India dont bleed runs in the death overs. “This team has been gelling into a formidable outfit. It had all its bases covered. Earlier, the death overs were causing problems, India were leaking runs and therefore losing their grip on the match, that has now been stopped. “Generally the last 5-10 overs go for a 100 runs, now I think thats been brought under control because of Nehra ji. His contribution to this team cannot be underestimated,” he said. PTI PM SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more

first_imgFrom K J M VarmaBeijing, Aug 24 (PTI) China today said it expects to hold talks with the Philippines on the tense dispute over the South China Sea at an early date, after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said that discussions might happen “within the year”.Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said they hoped that the talks will happen at an early date.Lu was responding to the remark yesterday by Duterte, who said the talks over the South China Sea dispute might happen “within the year”.Chinese official media quoted Duterte as saying that he had no plan to take the South China Sea arbitration to the East Asia Summit next month, and would rather talk about the dispute with China face-to-face.An international tribunal last month adjudicating on a Philippine petition struck down Chinas claims over almost all of the SCS and upheld Manilas right in the area claimed by it.China, which has undertaken giant land reclamation works in disputed parts of the sea, has vowed to ignore the ruling.It has called for direct talks with the Philippines, but asserted it will not compromise on its claims.Besides the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have counter claims over the South China Sea, through which USD 5 trillion of annual shipping trade passes.Welcoming Dutertes remarks, Lu said China will always work with countries directly concerned, including the Philippines, to resolve any dispute through peaceful negotiation and consultation.China and the Philippines, as friendly neighbours, have the ability and wisdom to settle the issue through consultation and restore friendly relations, Lu said.advertisementFormer Philippine President Fidel Ramos visited Hong Kong as Dutertes special envoy earlier this month to pave way for talks with Beijing.

Some innovations make us want to raise our hands skyward and proclaim, “Thank you, God, for allowing us to live in this Golden Age of Technology.” Finally, personal jetpacks are within reach, and it appears all of our boyhood dreams are coming come true.The Jet Suit from Gravity Industries (code name: “Daedalus”) is the closest thing we’ve seen to a legit Tony Stark-worthy Iron Man suit. Sure, it lacks the sleek, everything-clicks-into-place-on-its-own panache.  But, it does boast a gut-punching 1,050 horsepower (incidentally, that’s more than the forthcoming Lamborghini Aventador) pushed through five kerosene-powered turbine engines — one on the pilot’s back and two on each arm. That’s enough thrust to propel almost any rider more than 30 miles per hour and up to 12,000 feet in the air (although the latter isn’t recommended). The fuel is only good for a four-minute ride, but that’s more than enough time to accidentally kill yourself. Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat This Black Boathouse Is a Luxurious Retreat on a Small Island in Norway Editors’ Recommendations The suit is the brainchild of British inventor Richard Browning, who summed up his project as “an entirely pure form of complete three-dimensional freedom.” That’s one way to look at it.Browning sees potential in Daedalus as a legitimate future transportation option for commuters. However, in an interview with NBC News MACH, he was careful to note, “Just like the first motor cars, which were noisy, smelly and inefficient …we have some way to go before you could commute by jet suit.” In an age where most commuters still haven’t mastered not driving while Instagramming, can you imagine your morning rush hour commute full of half-trained jetpack riders?We’ve covered plenty of sky-riding tech toys before, most of which come from the lunatic garage of Zapata. The brand brought us the Flyboard. Then, there was this insane hydro jetpack and a Silver Surfer-inspired Hoverboard.

By Rabii BenadadaCasablanca – On Saturday, April 19th, British Polo Day – presented by Land Rover – celebrated its first event on African soil with the inaugural British Polo Day Morocco. Guests including Sir Richard Branson, philanthropist Eve Branson, Philip Treacy, British Ambassador to Morocco Clive Alderton, US Ambassador to Morocco Dwight L. Bush Sr and a handful of Virgin Galactic astronauts gathered at the Jnan Amar Polo Club for a day of top polo, followed by a Gala Dinner which raised over US$175,000 – a record for the British Polo Day Global Series. Hosted by the Jnan Amar Polo Club for the benefit of The Eve Branson Foundation, under the High Patronage of King Mohammed VI and the auspices of the Royal Moroccan Polo Federation, British Polo Day entertained over 350 guests and VIPs. Against the backdrop of the majestic Atlas Mountains, guests enjoyed a drinks reception over a quintessentially British game of Brompton bicycle polo – a rather amusing spectacle! Everyone then took their seats in the beautiful traditional Berber tents overlooking the polo field below, for an afternoon of fast-paced polo.The day’s polo got off to an exhilarating start with the Jnan Amar Cup – a closely-fought encounter between the Royal Salute Eve Branson Commonwealth and Oxford Group Holdings Jnan Amar Rest of The World teams. New Zealand international eight-goaler John Paul Clarkin and his team were on top form from the opening minutes of the first chukka and went on to win the match seven and a half goals to four, despite some serious pressure and very fine play from the Oxford Group Holdings team.After a delicious afternoon tea, the Hackett British Army took to the field alongside the Moroccan Royal Guard – their first ever encounter – for the Land Rover Trophy. At plus four goals, this was a unique affair and a low scoring game belied the intensity of the play, which resulted in a two goal draw. A fitting end to this first ever match between the two armies.The day drew to a close at the British Polo Day Morocco prize-giving which took place at one of Jnan Amar Polo Club’s stunning villas – a showcase for the first phase of the Ritz-Carlton Private Residences soon to launch on sale. With the crowds gathered, Sir Richard Branson and his mother, Eve presented the Royal Salute Eve Branson Commonwealth team with the Jnan Amar Cup, while the US Ambassador to Morocco, Dwight L. Bush Sr jointly-presented the coveted Land Rover Trophy to both the Hackett British Army and Moroccan Royal Guard teams.The Holland & Holland Shot of the Day was awarded to Stuart Wrigley of the Royal Salute Eve Branson Commonwealth team for a high grade shot in the final minutes of the Jnan Amar Cup match. Top British designer Zaeem Jamal then took to the stage to present the eagerly-anticipated Best Dressed prize to glamorous guest, Laura Novell.The evening’s Gala Dinner took place at Marrakech’s historic La Mamounia. Arriving to a Royal Salute Scotch Whisky and Taittinger champagne reception, guests then sat down for a three-course dinner in the Mamounia’s beautiful ballroom. Then followed a spectacular fashion show by milliner to stars and royalty, Philip Treacy and celebrated womenswear designer Zaeem Jamal.The Charity Auction proved to be the perfect culmination of the day’s event and raised over a record US$175,000 for The Eve Branson Foundation. The ever-inspiring Eve Branson gave a moving speech on her Foundation and her exciting plans to help a new project village in the Atlas Mountains. Enthusiastic philanthropist, Sir Richard Branson not only invited three lucky guests to play a rather memorable game of doubles tennis with him, but also threw in a surprise additional lot of a week at his exclusive private Necker Island, which of course sparked a bidding frenzy!Travelling with Abercrombie & Kent, British Polo Day Morocco’s guests not only enjoyed the day itself but an exclusive four-day itinerary taking in some of Marrakech’s most spectacular landmarks. Highlights included: a private preview of Royal Mansour’s new Yahya&Qotbi exhibition, an Atlas Mountains Land Rover Experience – in which guests navigated themselves through the mountains to Eve Branson’s project villages – and the official British Polo Day Morocco medina launch party on the atmospheric rooftop of Riad El Fenn.Before heading home, Sir Richard Branson personally invited the Charity Auction lot winners to a private Easter Sunday philanthropist lunch at the magical, boutique Kasbah Tamadot. By all accounts the doubles tennis match was of an impressively-high standard and somewhat competitive.Photo Courtesy British Polo DayRabii Benadada is a researcher in sports management at the ISCAE Business School in Casablanca, Morocco©Morocco World News.

According to the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET), the setting up of the new Special Committee follows yesterday’s endorsement by the Council of a draft regulation on the establishment of a Commission on Reception, Truth and Reconciliation. The panel will study the regulation and conduct public hearings to consult with those members of civil society and political parties who have not already given direct input into it. UNTAET said. The Committee will present its report to the National Council on 28 May.In other news, the East Timor Transitional Cabinet today endorsed amendments to three regulations governing East Timor’s judicial system, designed to improve the cohesiveness and efficiency of the judiciary and make better use of international judicial expertise to accelerate capacity-building efforts. The amendments, which will now be referred to the National Council for consideration, are also intended to give the Court of Appeal supervisory powers over the district courts and to give the Transitional Judicial Services Commission broader disciplinary leverage. read more

“We are extremely happy and grateful to the Turkmen government for this generous decision. We have been working closely for the past 10 years to find a permanent durable solution for these refugees,” said Annika Linden, chief of mission for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the Turkmen capital, Ashgabat.The President of Turkmenistan, Saparmurat Niyazov, signed a decree last Thursday granting Turkmen citizenship to 13,245 people of ethnic Turkmen origin as well as people who had lived on land formerly rented to Uzbekistan and others who had migrated to Turkmenistan for family or other reasons.Generally seen as an asset to the host community, most of the Tajik refugees started building houses and cultivating land obtained from the government in the 1990s. Their children were given the right to attend and graduate from Turkmen schools.UNHCR, which opened its office in Ashgabat in 1995, has been providing protection to the refugees and assisting the government to facilitate their local integration through language courses and vocational training. The agency also contributed agricultural equipment such as tractors, bulldozers, electric transformers and water pumps to enhance their self-sufficiency.”We always tried to make sure that these projects would benefit not only the targeted refugee communities, but also the surrounding local population,” said Ms. Linden. “We believed this would facilitate the integration of the refugees into the wider community and allow them to adapt to Turkmenistan.”The collapse of the Soviet Union and ensuing civil wars and ethnic conflicts in the early 1990s created a complex refugee picture in Central Asia. UNHCR’s engagement in the region began in Tajikistan in 1993 as an emergency response to help more than 600,000 people displaced by civil war. Within a few years, it had expanded to Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. read more

The Isil fanatic is accused of plotting to kill Theresa May (pictured)Credit:Peter Macdiarmid/LNP Rahman said he would aim to strike when Mrs May came out of 10 Downing Street to talk to the press (pictured), jurors heard On October 23 last year, Rahman met a contact known as Abu Waleed in a Shepherd’s Bush shopping centre.He told the agent that he planned to use a suicide belt, drone, improvised explosive device and poison, referred to as P or “curry mix”.He allegedly divulged the targets of the MI5 building and Parliament. Meanwhile, Imran was asking his MI5 role-player to get him a passport quickly.At a further meeting on November 15 last year, Rahman allegedly said: “They’re gonna s*** it, especially her who is inside.”Three days later, Rahman carried out reconnaissance around Whitehall, walking past the entrance to Downing Street, the court heard.Rahman, from Finchley, north London, has denied two counts of preparing terrorist acts.Imran, of Sparkbrook, Birmingham, has pleaded not guilty to preparing terrorist acts and possessing a terrorist document on his Kindle entitled How To Survive In The West – A Mujahid’s Guide 2015. **What is Islamic State?** A salafi Islamist extremist group that controls territory in the middle east and sponsors terrorist activity internationally.**What are its aims?** A worldwide Islamic caliphate – a religious government without borders.**What is it actually called?** In the west, the group is known as Isil (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) or Isis (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). The militants themselves prefer to be called “Islamic State” in recognition of their self-declared caliphate. Daesh is an abbreviation of *Dawlat al-Islamiyah f’al-Iraq wa al-Sham*, and is the derogatory name used by many Muslims.**What terror attacks has it carried out?** Isil has claimed responsibility for numerous atrocities, including the Brussels suicide bombings in March 2016, the Paris attacks of 13 November 2015 and the London ramming and stabbing rampages of 2017. As its territorial power has shrunk, the group has switched to sponsoring more frequent and less strategically ambitious “lone wolf” attacks.**Where is it based?** Since 2014, Isil’s de facto capital was the city of Raqqa in Syria. However, the group lost control of Raqqa in late 2017 to a US-backed coalition force. In Iraq Isil was based in the city of Mosul, but was driven out by Iraqi security forces in mid-2017. It now lacks a capital, but retains footholds in a number of states. The defendant is also accused of helping his friend Mohammad Aqib Imran, 22, join Isil in Syria by recording a sponsorship video.Mr Heywood said the men knew each other well and shared the same “warped ideology”.On Imran, he said: “He elected to travel and set about assembling money, acquiring a fake passport, engaging in research and otherwise equipping himself with the information and means to travel aboard for violence for terrorist purposes.Jurors heard how both defendants were engaged in chat with MI5 role players, even though they discussed the dangers of “spies”. Rahman said he would aim to strike when Mrs May came out of 10 Downing Street to talk to the press (pictured), jurors heardCredit:Dan Kitwood/Getty If he could not get to her, he would kill a few guards then detonate himself to create “big news”, the court heard.Jurors were shown covert video footage of a meeting in Shaq’s car in a PC World car park in Brixton on November 6 last year. In it, Rahman said he would get past the gate and make a “10-second sprint” for the door of Number 10. He allegedly said his main objective was to “take her head off”.Mr Heywood told jurors: “His settled conclusion was that lethal violence here, directed at the very heart of the United Kingdom Government, was the only effective way to pursue his intentions.”Before his arrest prevented it, he was, he believed, just days away from his objective, which was no less than a suicide attack, by blade and explosion, on Downing Street and, if he could, upon the Prime Minister Theresa May herself.”He said Rahman planned a full frontal attack and fully expected to die.

An Islamic State fanatic plotted to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May in a suicide attack on 10 Downing Street, a court has heard.Naa’imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, was encouraged to cause carnage in Britain by an uncle who had joined Isil and died in a drone strike in Syria, jurors were told.He allegedly thought he was just days away from inflicting “lethal violence” with a knife and a suicide vest before his arrest last November.But his plan was uncovered by a two-year MI5 surveillance operation which involved an agent posing as a senior Isil official in Syria, the Old Bailey heard.Prosecutor Mark Heywood QC read out Telegram chat in which Rahman was allegedly snared by the fake Amir.On September 14 last year, Rahman said: “Can you put me in a sleeper cell ASAP? I want to do a suicide bomb on Parliament. I want to attempt to kill Theresa May.”The next day, he said: “My objective is to take out my target. Nothing less than the death of the leaders of Parliament.”The court heard Rahman went on to praise the Manchester arena bomber, saying he “did well”. Jurors heard he said: “Everyone inside, including the Prime Minister would be dead.”Rahman talked about the MI5 building but allegedly said: “Getting outside Parliament when all the leaders are there is simple, you can walk right outside.”On September 23 last year, Rahman also said he had an idea based on what his uncle had told him about the Isil development of poison, jurors were told.Rahman is accused of conducting reconnaissance, recording a pledge of allegiance, and delivering a rucksack and jacket to be fitted with explosives.On November 1, Rahman was introduced to another member of the network called Shaq, an undercover police officer, to help him get a blade and suicide vest.Rahman allegedly told him: “If you can put a belt on me, I’d actually want to do that.”He said he would aim to strike when Mrs May came out of 10 Downing Street to talk to the press, jurors heard. The Isil fanatic is accused of plotting to kill Theresa May (pictured) He allegedly said he thought about wearing “a vest”, driving past Parliament and “pushing the button” to “clear the entire block”. read more

first_imgPoule : Monoprix ne vendra plus que des œufs d’animaux élevés en plein airA compter du 1er avril, les magasins Monoprix ne vendront plus que des œufs de leur marque issus de poules élevées en sol ou en plein air. Ce faisant l’enseigne souhaite “promouvoir une consommation responsable”.C’est une initiative exemplaire que vient d’annoncer la chaîne de supermarchés Monoprix : elle a décidé de retirer les œufs de sa marque issus de poules élevées en cage. Ainsi, à compter du 1er avril, les œufs de marques Monoprix seront tous certifiés issus de poules élevées en sol, en plein air ou en agriculture biologique. Une initiative motivée, selon un communiqué de l’enseigne, par la volonté de “promouvoir une consommation responsable”.Alors qu’en Allemagne, en Belgique, en Italie, aux Pays-Bas et au Royaume-Uni certains distributeurs avaient déjà bannis les œufs de poules élevées en cage, c’est une première en France. “Monoprix sera donc la première chaîne de supermarchés française à exclure un produit de sa marque du fait des souffrances animales générées”, souligne l’association L214, pour qui cet engagement “est un pavé dans la mare pour les autres enseignes et les grandes marques d’œufs”. Cette décision était fortement demandée depuis deux ans par l’association qui s’est spécialisée dans la protection des animaux utilisés pour l’alimentation. En effet, ces 15 derniers mois, des militants de L214 déguisés en poulets géants, brandissaient des panneaux montrant des élevages de poules en cages, distribuaient des tracts et des pétitions à l’entrée des supermarchés Monoprix. Après 27.000 signatures rassemblées, l’enseigne a finalement pris la décision de mettre fin à la vente des œufs de poules élevés en cage.La pétition largement signée montre que, comme ailleurs dans le monde, les Français sont de plus en plus sensibles à la condition animale et aux méthodes cruelles de l’élevage intensif. Comme le rappelle le, un sondage Ifop réalisé en 2010 a d’ailleurs montré que 75% de nos concitoyens se disent prêts à payer leurs œufs plus chers s’ils ont la garantie qu’ils ne proviennent pas de poules élevées en cage. Malheureusement, 60% des sondés avouent ne pas savoir décoder les informations fournies sur les œufs.Savoir déchiffrer les codes sur les oeufs Pour plus de simplicité, voilà donc ce qu’il faut retenir : le premier chiffre du code inscrit sur l’œuf indique les conditions d’élevage. Plus celui-ci est bas, plus la poule est élevée dans des bonnes conditions : 0 pour un élevage en agriculture biologique, 1 pour un élevage en plein air, 2 pour un élevage au sol et 3 pour un élevage en cage. Les lettres qui suivent indiquent la provenance de l’œuf (FR pour France suivi du “code producteur”).À lire aussiL’étonnante éclosion d’œufs du crapaud de SurinamA compter du 1er avril prochain, donc, Monoprix ne vendra plus d’œufs de sa marque numérotés 3 qui représentent pourtant 80% des œufs vendus en France. Mais fort de son succès, L214 envisage de mener de nouvelles actions auprès d’autres supermarchés. L’association a par ailleurs déjà annoncé qu’elle poursuivra sa campagne en direction de Monoprix pour que tous les œufs de batterie, y compris ceux des grandes marques nationales, soient définitivement retirés de ses rayons.”Parce que des milliers de poules continueront de souffrir en cages tant que des marques nationales écouleront des œufs de batterie, nous appelons Monoprix à s’engager pour un rayon 100 % sans œufs de cage, en fixant par exemple une date-cible pour y parvenir”, demande ainsi l’association citée par le 12 février 2013 à 12:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgUS President Donald Trump walks after arriving on Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPFrom his resounding setbacks in Congress to his stunning policy flip-flops, Donald Trump has faced a steep learning curve in his opening months at the White House.Although the new US president has shown a capacity to change both his tone and positions, he has struggled to convey a clearly articulated worldview.With the arrival of the symbolic milestone of 100 days in power on Saturday, a cold, hard reality is setting in for the billionaire businessman who promised supporters he would “win, win, win” for them.At this stage of his presidency, Donald Trump is the least popular leader in modern US history—even if his core supporters still fully back him.The 70-year-old president, whose election victory unleashed a political shockwave around the world, is still clinging to the take-no-prisoners, unpredictable, impulsive style that made him a property mogul and reality TV star.But the onetime anti-establishment candidate who promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington appears to have recognized—with a mix of naivete and craftiness—that he has one of the most difficult jobs in the world.In just his first few weeks in office, Trump suffered some crippling blows. Federal courts halted his proposed travel ban and Congress failed to adopt health care reform.“Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated,” he said during his efforts to have Obamacare—his Democratic predecessor’s signature domestic policy achievement—repealed and replaced.And following talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping about North Korea, he said that “after listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy.”Tweets-a-plentyThe demands and constraints of the Oval Office—where every word uttered counts—are quite different from the daily stump speeches Trump made on the campaign trail.Where to turn for advice? What kind of relationship to build with Congress, even when it’s controlled by his own party? How much latitude to afford the usually powerful State and Defense departments?All of his predecessors have said it: moving into the mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a shock to the system.“There’s just something about this job as president every president faces—you know, that you think one thing going in and then the pressures of the job or the realities of the world, you know, are different than you thought,” George W. Bush said recently.Aside from his unwavering penchant for morning tweetstorms, often influenced by the ebb and flow of headlines on Fox News, Trump has already changed.In the choice of his teams as well as in some negotiations, a sort of “presidentialization” seems to be unfolding—albeit haltingly.Elevated to the highest office in the United States with no prior political, diplomatic or military experience, Trump says his ever-evolving approach works.“I do change and I am flexible, and I’m proud of that flexibility,” he said shortly before authorizing air strikes against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over what Washington says was a sarin gas attack on civilians.On China, Russia and NATO, his about-faces have reassured some Americans to some extent, as well as some of Washington’s allies.“When a president moves from being so wrong to being so right on such important questions, the sensible response is not to carp but to celebrate, however cautiously,” The Washington Post said in an editorial, reminding readers of the harsh, dark tone of Trump’s inaugural address.But his approach also includes risks.From Syria to North Korea, what is the risk of dragging the United States into a military conflict with an unpredictable outcome, a situation Trump warned against on the campaign trail?How would the Republican president react if a major terror attack were to happen on US soil, as it did on 9/11?‘Trumpism?’Both style and substance reveal that Donald J. Trump is an American president like no other before him.In a disconcerting interview given to Time magazine in March, in which Trump defended his controversial, far-fetched or just plain false statements one by one, he said: “What am I going to tell you? I tend to be right.”More than three months after he took office, many of his detractors still deem comments by the novelist Philip Roth in an interview with The New Yorker in late January to be on the money.He described a president “ignorant of government, of history, of science, of philosophy, of art, incapable of expressing or recognizing subtlety or nuance… and wielding a vocabulary of 77 words.”Trump’s numerous policy pivots and resets also raise questions about the very definition of his fluid brand of “Trumpism”—which revolves around his ubiquitous “America First” slogan, a seemingly simple idea that is nevertheless tough to explain.The internal squabbles within the Trump White House have meanwhile not helped the president move forward with articulating his long-term vision.Within a group that includes the ultra-conservative Steve Bannon, one thing stands out: the prime positioning of his family, especially daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner.The successful nomination of conservative federal judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court stands as the major success of the first 100 days of the 45th president of the United States.All too aware that he doesn’t have much to show for those days, Trump lashed out with a tweet decrying the “ridiculous standard of the first 100 days”—one his own team has repeatedly said is vital.Now Trump—who regularly talks about possibly running for re-election—has more than 1,300 days ahead of him until his first term ends.last_img read more

first_imgYesterday, the React team announced the release of React 16.9. This release comes with an asynchronous testing utility, programmatic Profiler, and a few deprecations and bug fixes. Along with the release announcement, the team has also shared an updated React roadmap. Following are some of the updates in React 16.9: Asynchronous act() method for testing React 16.8 introduced a new API method called ‘ReactTestUtils.act()’. This method enables you to write tests that involve rendering and updating components run closer to how React works in the browser. This release only supported synchronous functions. Whereas React 16.9 is updated to accept asynchronous functions as well. Performance measurements with Introduced in React 16.5, React Profiler API collects timing information about each rendered component to find performance bottlenecks in your application. This release adds a new “programmatic way” for gathering measurements called . It keeps track of the number of times a React application renders and how much it costs for rendering. With these measurements, developers will be able to identify the application parts that are slow and need optimization. Deprecations in React 16.9 Unsafe lifecycle methods are now renamed The legacy component lifecycle methods are renamed by adding an “UNSAFE_” prefix. This will indicate that if your code uses these lifecycle methods, it will be more likely to have bugs in React’s future releases. Following are the functions that have been renamed: ‘componentWillMount’ to ‘UNSAFE_componentWillMount’ ‘componentWillReceiveProps’ to ‘UNSAFE_componentWillReceiveProps’ ‘componentWillUpdate’ to ‘UNSAFE_componentWillUpdate’ This is not a breaking change, however, you will see a warning when using the old names. The team has also provided a ‘codemod’ script for automatically renaming these methods. javascript: URLs will now give a warning URLs that start with “ javascript:” are deprecated as they can serve as “a dangerous attack surface”. As with the renamed lifecycle methods, these URLs will continue to work, but will show a warning. The team recommends developers to use React event handlers instead. “In a future major release, React will throw an error if it encounters a javascript: URL,” the announcement read. How does the React roadmap look like The React team has made some changes in the roadmap that was shared in November. React Hooks was released as per the plan, however, the team underestimated the follow-up work, and ended up extending the timeline by a few months. After React Hooks released in React 16.8, the team focused on Concurrent Mode and Suspense for Data Fetching, which are already being used in Facebook’s website. Previously, the team planned to split Concurrent Mode and Suspense for Data Fetching into two releases. Now both of these features will be released in a single version later this year. “We shipped Hooks on time, but we’re regrouping Concurrent Mode and Suspense for Data Fetching into a single release that we intend to release later this year,” the announcement read. To know more in detail about React 16.9, you can check out the official announcement.
