Suppressed at home, some Uzbeks turn to militant Islam abroad

  Suppressed at home, some Uzbeks turn to militant Islam abroad Pushed by a lack of jobs and strict control of behaviour and dissent, millions of Uzbeks have emigrated in recent years. Hundreds of those joined Islamic State in the Middle East, while others turned to religious extremism in their host countries. Sayfullo Saipov, the Uzbek immigrant accused of killing eight people in a truck attack in New York on Tuesday, appears to have taken the latter path, becoming radicalized after struggling with life in the West.According to U.S. police, the 29-year-old followed online instructions from Islamic State before launching the assault.

AOL informed users of its Alto email service that it ' s shuttering the app on December 10. The multi-inbox tool will be removed from app stores this month. Self-driving cars will kill people and we need to accept that.

Alto made its debut back in October 2012, when AOL previewed it to users as a smarter inbox for a range of email services, with an interface designed to help you manage your messages better. In 2015, it evolved into a modern mobile app that mimicked Google’s Inbox in some ways.

I quite liked Alto when I tested it two years ago – the UI was fresh and intuitive, and included a neat Stacks feature to help you group and triage similar messages at once. It also surfaced important information from your emails, like shipping dates and updates on your air travel itinerary.

While I haven’t used Alto much since then, it’s sad to see an innovative alternative to Google and Microsoft’s services disappear. The team at AOL hasn’t specified if it plans to revisit Alto in the future, but noted that it’ll share updates, if any, on its social media channels later on.
