Refugee kids in Orange County find a safe haven in soccer SLIDESHOW Kids play soccer as part of a free Kids play soccer as part of a free "summer camp" for refugee children in Westminster run by World Relief, a resettlement agency in Garden Grove. LESLIE BERESTEIN ROJAS/KPCC Leslie Berestein Rojas | August 4, 2017 Every Tuesday morning for the past several weeks, about two dozen girls and boys have gathered on a grassy field at a Westminster middle school to play soccer. From a distance, it could be any summer soccer program. But draw closer and one hears the kids cheering on one another in languages like Arabic and Dari as they chase and kick the ball. The vast majority of these kids are refugees. They came from places like Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran. Some have been in the U.S. a year or two, others only a few weeks. But all are adjusting to life in a country where President Trump’s temporary ban on refugee travel is in effect and the reception is not uniformly welcoming. The kids range in age from 7 to 16. Some are skilled players who have been playing for years, others are relative newbies, like 13-year-old Neegina Stanikzai, who arrived from Afghanistan about 10 months ago. For Neegina, just being on this outside field is a revelation. In Afghanistan where she grew up, she couldn't play soccer out in the open, Neegina said. “We were playing soccer in the home, not outside, because there are bad people, and they say they will kill you. That is why we were just at home, all...

Setup Wi-Fi in 5 seconds

At Sugr, we had bad experiences to setup wireless speakers. Did you? For a Wi-Fi speakers, below steps are usually needed: 1. Power on the device and it will work as an AP or router (let’s say its SSID is “Painful Wi-Fi”); 2. Connect that “Painful Wi-Fi” using your PC or iPad; 3. Then open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1; 4. A webpage will be promoted to you and you need to input the home SSID and password; 5. After that, the device will reboot and try to connect to your home Wi-Fi. This link shows exactly such complex experience. However, at Sugr, we pursue simplicity! We invented the simplest way for Wi-Fi password set-up by using Sound Recognition Technology. Here’s the demo: Setting Wi-Fi password is JUST 5-second.

How to control airplay on client side

Most of the times airplay client just streaming audio to sound card. What if we want to skip the current playing song without any operations on iTunes ? DACP (Digital Audio Control Protocol) DACP solved this problem. Digital Audio Control Protocol (DACP) is a protocol used by the iTunes and other audio player and server applications on Mac, Windows and Linux computers. Acording to Unofficial AirPlay Protocol Specification. Airplay protocol includes a subset of DACP. Send a HTTP request to iTunes DACP Server can pause the current playing song. GET /ctrl-int/1/pause HTTP/1.1 Host: starlight.local. Active-Remote: 1986535575 But, we need to find out the exact port of iTunes DACP Server and the value of Active-Remote. They are hided in the shairport RTSP request header. RTSP is the protocol used in airplay audio streaming. Airplay RTSP headers Run shairport with level 2 verbose mode, then you’ll get all RTSP headers dumped. “` $ ./shairport -vv …. received request: SET_PARAMETER rtsp://192.168.1.102/9487978813838695974 RTSP/1.0 RTP-Info: rtptime=2141729804 CSeq: 7 DACP-ID: 3F66DB0A16A7EBD6 Active-Remote: 2319864219 Content-Type: text/parameters Content-Length: 43 …. “` About 10~20 RTSP headers will be dumped in first few seconds airplay get connected. Every RTSP request contains DACP-ID and Active-Remote fields. These fields will be used for DACP controlling later. mDNS mDNS is a service discovery protocol (SDP) like uPNP. Apple’s Bonjour is based on mDNS. Both iTunes and shairport uses mDNS to publish their services. When iTunes airplay device list menu is expanded, it searchs all airplay clients by mDNS discovery. When airplay is streaming, iTunes’ DACP service is published. Avahi is an opensource mDNS implement. Use avahi-browse command can find all shairport clients...
