jamuna special desk: UNESCO Has republished a video, commemorating the International Mother Language Day, hours after pulling it down for not including a Bangla segment in it.
Bangalis laid down their lives in 1952 to protect the right to speak in their mother tongue. The International Mother Language Day is the global recognition of the sacrifice and the historic Language Movement.
UNESCO first published the video on Monday, featuring people of various nationalities saying what their mother tongues are but excluded Bangla, the sixth most spoken language in the world.
The two-minute clip titled “What’s your mother language?” was uploaded from UNESCO’s official YouTube handle with the description: “To celebrate the International Mother Language Day, we’re asking people from around the world to tell us what their mother tongue is. So, what’s your mother language?”
Bangladesh has been marking February 21 as the Language Martyrs’ Day since 1952. In 1999, UNESCO decided to observe the International Mother Language Day on February 21 every year.

Microsoft planning major
jamuna technology desk: Microsoft has spent considerable time talking about and teasing its upcoming Creators update for Windows 10. We won’t have wait long to find out, as the Creators update is one of two major releases scheduled for 2017.
The Creators update will introduce a bevy of new features, many of which are focused on gaming in Windows 10. One of those is a dedicated Game Mode that does a batter job of and prioritizing and muting background tasks when playing a game, which in theory is supposed to increase both the average and peak frame rates. In practice, we saw negligible gains, though that was from testing a beta version of a newly minted Kaby Lake setup. Game Mode should work best on high mileage systems with a lot going on in the background.
Microsoft is also focusing on virtual reality experiences with the Creators update and has even lined up third-party hardware makers to produce less expensive VR headsets starting at $299. Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo are all on board.
While the Creators update figures to be a significant upgrade to the windows 10 experience in multiple ways, there is plenty more that Microsoft wants to accomplish.
Rafael Rivera, a frequent contributor to Thurrott.com, got his hands on a Microsoft slide that confirms a second update is headed to Windows 10 this year.
The slide was shared by Microsoft at igniting Australia last week. Unfortunately, it doesn’t reveal any details about the forthcoming update, but if Microsoft is truly committed to gaming (as seems to be the case), there could be even more gaming goodies before the year is through. The same goes for expanding VR capabilities.
Given the quick turnaround from the Creators update to a second release just months later, we also anticipate a heavy dose of bug fixes. Beyond that, we’ll have to wait and see.
