Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content. It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button, as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen. VoiceOver, the revolutionary screen reader for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, Assistive Touch, and Zoom.

The new iPad
iPod touch (4th & 5th generation)
iPhone 5 will be release on Friday, iPod Touch 5th Generation will be release this fall despite all the rumors about whether the new iPod Touch (5th Generation) will be coming out, but I think that this mobile software will be so much better than iOS 5, and with a lot of competition of so many operating software, this could be one of the best mobile operating system yet all over the world.

The Wisconsin Sikh Temple Attack: The Gunman being identified by authorities kills 6 people in a temple church, Including himself
By Ryan Ngala
Oak Creek, Wisconsin – With the news that arrived this afternoon that there have been another terrible outburst of violence, a shooting, a very bad one, inside a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee, there was a lot of confusion initially as police responded and the first victims were airlifted out. Tonight the details have become clear and this incident is initially being treated as an act of domestic terrorism; that description comes from local authorities. The FBI is now on the scene as well and law enforcement officials telling NBC News details about this alleged gunman. They said he’s a man in his thirties, he was wearing tactical gear during the attack, and he was armed with a single hand gun. Officials are now searching what they believe is his home, looking for clues about his motive.
The 911 calls began at 10:25am. There was gunfire at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. Worshippers said one service had ended and another was about to begin; families where gathering with small children. “Our officer 20 year veteran, was ambushed, shot multiple times, he is currently at the hospital undergoing surgery, we expect him to recover” said Chief John Edwards of the Oak Creek Police Department. The officer was rushed to Milwaukee hospital along with at least 9 other wounded victims. “And another officer, who was unseen, was engaged by the suspect, our officer did engage that individual, and that individual was deceased” Chief Edwards added.
Authorities said they found 4 people dead inside the temple and two more bodies outside. In the chaos, many people hid throughout the building. For hours police combed through the Temple bringing out survivors. For family members outside, it was an agonizing wait. “Well my mom, she was one of the ladies that was hiding in the pantry and she called us around eleven, and she told us, she called us very quick and she whispered, she said don’t come she’s like there’s a shooting here” one victim said. Some of the children attending services were as young as 4 years old, “My kids are like 5, we were late today, you know we were just like 10 to 15 minutes late you know, otherwise my kids would be dead in there too” one man said.
Others in the local community who are Sikhs rushed to the scene looking for answers, “Biggest question, we have is just a hate crime, I mean what did we do wrong, since 9/11 we have small attacks on the community” one victim said. There have been incidents nationwide were Sikhs have been mistakenly targeted by anti-Muslims groups, “This is such a tragedy, and hopefully we can use this event to educate Americans about our seek religion” the same victim added. Tonight for the second time in a little more than two weeks, both President Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are expressing their condolences to the families of the victims of another mass shooting.
Sources from FoxNews.com reports Officials said the gunman, whom they identified as Wade Michael Page, walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin on Sunday and opened fire with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun as several dozen people prepared for morning services. The victims ranged in age from 39 to 84, authorities said. Three others were wounded and remain in critical condition, including 51-year-old veteran police officer Brian Murphy.Wade Michael Page, 40, turned his 9mm semi-automatic handgun on himself after being shot in the stomach by a police officer who responded to the scene in Oak Creek, Wis. Authorities had previously had said Page was killed with a rifle shot from an Oak Creek police officer after he refused to put down his weapon and fired at the officer. Teresa Carlson, special agent in charge of the FBI in Milwaukee, said investigators reviewed videotape that showed Page died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

9.5% including 670 million people are still without power
By Ryan Ngala
It was by far the largest blackout in world history, as it peak today nearly 9.5% of the world’s population was without power it happen in India where just under six hundred and seventy million people and that’s twice the size of the U.S. population, found themselves plunge into darkness and grid lock and this involves something that is a bit of an issue in the U.S. an aging and often overwhelmed power grid.
Imagine being caught in a blackout the size of America, and then double it, traffic lights, hundreds of trains, and subways all grinding to a halt, in a written statement saying
“Due to power failure from northern grid Metro will be delay as per actual time. Sorry for inconvenience Caused.”
That’s the kind of chaos that people in India as many as six hundred and seventy million of them faced over the past two days, as half of the national power grid shut down.
So did an electric elevator in a mineshaft in West Bangkok trapping some two hundred coal miners for hours, and with summer temperatures breaking down 100 degrees, air conditioning even fans stop in many hospitals. “I pay for an x-ray” said the patient, “But because of the blackout, I can’t get it now”. Monday’s outage was bad enough but as switches tripped across the country of two thousand miles route from the border through China to Pakistan that was plunge into darkness.
Officials overwhelmed blame the state for using more power than they were allocated by the national government, but analysis say record blackout was bound to happen as an out dated grid just can’t keep up with the appetite of an emerging economic super power. Shereen Bahn of CNBC says “There’s going to be a lot of tough questions to answer, because this has been the worse that we actually seen in over a decade”.
India is used to blackouts most key faculties like airports and power plants have dedicated generators, but the added costs of fuels that run them hurt struggling Indians, “We need electricity, our machines don’t work and generators aren’t that helpful, everyone’s in trouble” one Indian resident said, tonight power has return to the capitol of New Delhi, but across the world’s second most popularize nation tens of millions remain in the dark.

From Left-to-right: Joyce S. Johnson, Craig Schley, Charles B. Rangel, Clyde Williams and Adriano Espaillat.
By Ryan Ngala
[Harlem, New York]
Tuesday was the biggest election of the summer season, and the candidates who ran for congress were just getting warmed up. For many people getting their chance to vote and letting their voices be heard as they endeavored to pick the strongest candidates for congress, Tuesday’s primary was their opportunity to get things right for this important community in the heart of New York City.
As the polls opened for election from 6 am - 9 pm, many voters scrambled from schools and office buildings to vote in the neighborhoods where they live. For many residents, exercising their right to vote indicates their courage and willingness to do what is necessary and best for their community during these tough economic times. But what do they really want for the congressional candidates to do in order to fix things for the community? Usually, this community never expects to get this kind of media attention early in the week.
This was my first time voting in an election, ever!, I was among the first voters to arrive at my polling place at Ps. 175 located at 175 W. 134th Street; that location is just two stops from where I live on 132nd Street. As I entered into the building, I walked all the way to the back where they were doing the voting. As I stepped into the gymnasium, one of the poll workers at the front desk asked me for my address and I told her what it was. Then she pointed to the 25th District table where I was to stand in line and wait while many other people received their green and white ballot papers.
The names of the five candidates were listed: Joyce S. Johnson, Craig Schley, Charles B. Rangel, Clyde Williams and Adriano Espaillat. Each voter then decided which candidate they wanted to vote for; they inserted the green and white ballot paper slip into the ballot scanner; as they inserted the ballot, the machine it read, “Thanks for voting.”
I walked out of the polling place and through the school building, I then walked across 125th Street and Lenox Avenue. I just wanted to see what was going on at Sylvia’s Restaurant; many news media had come there to cover the election story. News crews from NY1, CBS 2, and ABC 7 were amongst those gathered at Sylvia’s. Congressman Charles B. Rangel was expected to arrive soon; when he did, he was greeted by all of his supporters. They were happy for the opportunity to express their love and gratitude to him. He had promoted uplift and change, not only for Harlem, but also for the Bronx, and many people love Congressman Charles B. Rangel and call him “Charlie” as a nickname.
The number of votes that had been counted by then was just over 8,000, but soon the count was boosted high to more than 12,800 votes. The people were surprised at the miraculous results! It was a stunning victory that made him the projected winner of the 13th district. “Charlie, we love you!!!” a supporter shouted. At that point, Congressman Charles B. Rangel was being named “The Lion of Lenox Avenue!” His self – determination not only as a champion but also as a warrior has once again made him the trusted leader to the Harlem community.
