first_imgBlack Stars striker, Jordan Ayew, scored his fourth goal of the Premier League season as Crystal Palace came from 2-0 down to snatch a point at Arsenal.The forward pounced on a cross by James McArthur which wasn’t dealt with by Arsenal defender David Luiz, and headed home.That strike means Jordan Ayew has now scored four times in nine Premier League appearances this season.The game appeared to be over for Palace in the first half as goals from Sokratis and David Luiz gave Arsenal a two-nil lead.However, the Eagles were awarded a penalty after a VAR Review with, Zaha’s initial yellow card for diving overturned by the referee.Luka Milivojevic stepped up and slotted home from the spot as Palace halved the deficit before the break.Palace were level six minutes into the second half, with Jordan Ayew heading home from McArthur’s cross.Arsenal thought they  had got a late goal when Sokratis found the net but it was ruled out after a VAR Review.With neither side able to find a winner, the game ended 2-2, a result which the Gunners will see as two points dropped.Jordan’s last goal for Palace was another crucial one as he found the net late on against West Ham United.The result keeps Crystal Palace in sixth place, just one point below Arsenal in fifth.Watch the goal below:last_img read more

Saini, who scalped two wickets while conceding only 18 runs in his four overs quota, was named the man of the match at the Holkar Stadium in Indore – the very venue where he played against Vidarbha in the Ranji Trophy final back in 2018. Soon after, leggie Yuzvendra Chahal, who was not picked for the game, interviewed him (Saini) and Shardul Thakur on his famous Chahal TV and was all praise for his RCB colleague for his flawless yorkers. However, Chahal also took a cheeky dig at Saini by labelling him as ‘Yorker Queen’.

Zipf Knows Environmental Victories Temporary

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – It was a good week last week for Cindy Zipf and her organization, Clean Ocean Action, with the hard fought defeat of a liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal and accompanying pipeline, but the work of protecting the environment continues.COA, a coalition of 117 organizations, is turning its attention to the health of the Navesink River and returning to the task of establishing a Clean Ocean Zone 20 miles from the shoreline running from Montauk Point to Cape May. But Zipf is still calling for Gov. Chris Christie to take a stand on the LNG proposal to strengthen the state’s position in anticipation of the possible submission of a modified, but similar proposal.Zipf and Catie Tobin, COA’s marine science education coordinator, sat down with The Two River Times Nov. 19 in a wide ranging discussion about the group’s ongoing projects. COA and other environmental groups shared a big win against LNG last week, although, they would certainly say it was a victory for the environment, as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo evoked his unilateral veto to stop a liquid natural gas (LNG) terminal and accompanying pipeline proposed 18 miles off Jones Beach and 28 miles off Long Branch.Zipf’s organization along with the Sierra Club, NY/NJ Baykeeper, American Littoral Society, Sen. Jennifer Beck and Representative Frank Pallone, had vociferously opposed the plan that was under consideration by federal agencies. Opponents for the better part of seven years have maintained this LNG facility and similar proposals pose a real threat to the environment, economy and national security and had worked to encourage the public to offer their opinions and persuade federal officials to deny the licensing application. On Nov. 12 Cuomo agreed, expressing the same concerns when he signed his veto.Zipf noted the U.S. would be a natural gas exporter by 2017 and therefore the facility wouldn’t be needed for domestic use. Besides, “there are alternatives out there,” on the energy front, those that are more efficient and renewable, including considering offshore wind energy that could be established in the same area of the Atlantic.But this was only one of a number of fronts the group has been coordinating its efforts.A major push for COA will be to again take up the cause of establishing a Clean Ocean Zone. Environmentalists are encouraging lawmakers – ideally on the federal level, but until then state legislation will work – to establish a 20-mile zone for the New York/New Jersey Bight – an idea that has been discussed for roughly two decades. The zone would “lock out the bad and lock in the good,” as it relates to the waters from Montauk Point, New York, to Cape May, protecting the marine life, preventing the Atlantic Ocean’s over-industrialization and prohibiting new ocean dumpsites, Zipf said.
Another pressing front is the Navesink River here in the Two River area and the growing problem of pollution in the waterway. The state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has downgraded the water quality for portions of the river. The DEP has prohibited the harvesting of shellfish and recommends not swimming in those portions of the river, extending to McClee’s Creek in Middletown and west of the Cooper’s Bridge into the Swimming River, due to contamination“It is certainly a cause of concern,” she said.A major culprit for the contamination is fecal matter bringing with it E. coli bacteria, according to Zipf.“When it rains,” she explained, “that entire area is contaminated.” Fertilizer is also a major concern.COA is working with other organizations “to bring them all together to come up with a game plan,” Zipf said. And that could involve utilizing the services of Environmental Canine Services. That New England–based company uses scenting dogs to detect and source track human sewage contamination in storm water systems. And this game plan, when completed “could be a model for all the other watershed areas of New Jersey,” she said.COA continues to conduct its Beach Sweeps, with the help of volunteers who work to remove debris and trash from the shore. The organization also conducts educational programs in schools and works with municipalities on their environmental issues and helping them in obtaining the DEP’s Sustainable Jersey certification program and Clean Ocean Action’s Municipal Blue Star program for municipal environmental stewardship.COA was established 31 years ago, an outgrowth of the Ocean Dumping Task Force and has now grown to a large coalition. Zipf started with the task force about that time, being brought into the organization by Dery Bennett, the former executive director of the American Littoral Society, who died in 2009.Zipf considered Bennett “a guru, a mentor.” “In many ways he was a father figure to me,” she noted.“He was the one who let me find the path in life that I didn’t know was in me,” she explained.Referring to the environmental organization’s work focusing on cleaning and protecting area waters, “The whole goal is we shouldn’t be needed,” however, there is always more work, Zipf explained. “Our goal is to put ourselves our of business. We shouldn’t be needed, but that’s not the case yet.”Great progress has been made over the 30 years, as we no longer have medical waste washing up on our shores and beach closings because of contamination are now rare instead of commonplace. But Bennett instilled in Zipf a lesson that has shown itself to be true time and again.“Dery use to say, ‘Environmental victories are always temporary,’” Zipf recalled.

NFL notes: McGahee could be on move

first_imgIt’s unusual for trade discussions to be made public, or for a coach to acknowledge any talk that involves players – particularly a player of McGahee’s caliber. News that the Bills would shop McGahee first came up last weekend, when New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese expressed interest in the player as a potential replacement for Tiki Barber, who retired after last season. Buffalo’s first-round pick out of Miami in 2003, McGahee is coming off a down season in which he finished with a career-low 990 yards rushing, but led the team with six touchdowns rushing in 14 starts. Garcia `surprised’ about not getting offer: Jeff Garcia is disappointed he never got a contract offer from the Philadelphia Eagles after leading them to five straight wins and a playoff victory following Donovan McNabb’s season-ending knee injury. “I was surprised I wasn’t offered a contract. There was never anything to negotiate over,” Garcia said in an interview with Comcast SportsNet. “We never know what it would’ve amounted to. It wasn’t about the money. It was about being in a great situation.” The Eagles agreed to a three-year contract extension with backup quarterback A.J. Feeley on Sunday, eliminating the chance Garcia would return to Philadelphia. Also: St. Louis released veteran guard Adam Timmerman. … Defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins signed a four-year, $16million contract extension with Green Bay that includes $6million in signing bonus, agent Cary Fabrikant said. Also, Packers quarterback Brett Favre had minor ankle surgery and is expected to recover in time for offseason workouts. … San Francisco 49ers cornerback Walt Harris had surgery to insert a screw in his broken left hand. The 49ers also waived cornerback Sammy Davis. … Defensive end Chris Kelsay signed a four-year contract with Buffalo. … The release of quarterback Joey Harrington and guards Seth McKinney and Bennie Anderson from the Dolphins is imminent by week’s end, according to the Miami Herald. Calling no player “untouchable,” Buffalo Bills coach Dick Jauron said the team would consider trade offers for starting running back Willis McGahee. “It’s in our best interest to listen to everybody, and no people are untouchable,” Jauron told the Associated Press at the NFL’s annual scouting combine at Indianapolis on Monday. “He’s a good back. He’s our starting running back right now. It’s no surprise to me at all that people are interested.” center_img Passing: George Preas, who won two NFL championships on the offensive line of the Baltimore Colts from 1955-65 , has died.

Boeing 787-10 and Airbus A319neo take first flights.

first_imgA Boeing 787-10 on its first test flight. Photo: Boeing. Boeing’s biggest Dreamliner and Airbus’ s smallest member of the A320neo family both took to the skies on Friday in a rare instance of two new aircraft types undertaking first flights on the same day.The Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner undertook its first flight at the US manufacturer’s facility in Charleston, South Carolina. The flight lasted four hours and 58 minutes and included tests on flight controls, systems and handling qualities.The 787-10 is a  stretch of the 787-9 that adds 18ft (5.5m) to the fuselage and can seat up to 330  passengers, about 14 per cent more than 787-9, and carry 15 per cent more freight.It cannot fly as far as the 787-9 — Boeing puts its range at 6430 nautical miles (11, 910km) as opposed to the 787-9s   6430 nm (14,140km) — but the company says it can still cover 90 per cent of global commercial airline routes.The 787-10 promises a 25 per cent fuel reduction per seat on the aircraft it replaces, up from 20 per cent on its sister Dreamliners,  and Boeing claims it will beat the competition by 10 per cent.It has won 149 orders from nine airlines across the world and will be introduced into service by launch customer Singapore Airlines.“From takeoff to landing, the airplane handled beautifully and just as expected,” said chief 787 pilot Tim Berg, who flew the plane with colleague Mike Bryan.  “The 787-10 is a fantastic machine that I know our customers and their passengers will love.”Watch the Boeing Webcast. The 787-10 will now undergo comprehensive flight testing before customer deliveries begin in the first half of 2018.Boeing says that since entering service in 2011, the 787 family has flown more than 152 million people on over 560 unique routes around the world, saving an estimated 14 billion pounds of fuel.The Airbus A319neo is the third member of the successful A320neo family and flew from Hamburg to Toulouse on Friday in a five-hour flight.The aircraft, powered by CFM International LEAP-1A   engines, allowed the crew to assess the aircraft’s general handling and main systems. It will remain in Toulouse to complete its flight test program.The smallest member of the family can also be powered by the Pratt & Witney PW1100G-JM geared turbofan engine and can fly up 7750km when equipped with sharklets.It is designed to deliver fuel savings of up to 15 per cent and seat up to 160 passengers or about 124 in a two-class configuration.The A319neo is particularly suited to difficult airports due to its short field performance and ability to operate in hot and high conditions.last_img read more

What Users Are Saying About Yelp Being Eaten by Google

first_imgTags:#news#web Google appears likely to purchase local review site Yelp for 1/3 of a YouTube – $500 million – according to TechCrunch and confirmed by the New York Times. Is this desirable for the users that made Yelp what it is today? Yelp was founded by members of what’s called the PayPal mafia, geeks made wealthy by the sale of PayPal to eBay, and funded initially by the same. It’s been hounded by ugly, if unprovable, allegations of extortion and is both loved and hated by the businesses it reviews. It’s loved none the less by users as a great place to learn about a business before you patronize it. How do users feel about the idea of their Yelp becoming the next Google property? Check out the opinions below and share your own in our poll or comments.Below are some of the most interesting opinions we’ve been hearing about this deal, first from tech geeks and then from people in local Yelp forums around the US.“No! I love Google, but they need competition. Buying Yelp moves Google one step closer to becoming yet-another-Microsoft.” -Kathy E. Gill, digital media educator at the University of Washington“[I] don’t care one way or another if Google buys @Yelp but not sure (like Dodgeball & Jaiku) that they will do a good job integrating.” – Aaron Strout, CMO of Powered, Inc.“The combo Aardvark [another rumored Google acquisition] + Yelp would be killer in the local search space because of the consumer purchase process.” -Sebastien Provencher, Praized Media“Yelp has success with interacting with its most active members locally, and I can’t see Google continuing that. Would be bad move.” – Drew Olanoff“Maybe if Yelp were acquired by the GOOG it would become reliable again. Yelp’s been hijacked by extortionists.” – Clay Newton, UX designer“No. Yelp is a community that doesn’t need Google as their overlord.” -Joseph Manna, InfusionSoftFrom Yelp Forums“I’m not sure how I would feel about a Google owned Yelp. One more step towards complete domination of the web.” -Chris “Walking Toxicology Report” L., Portland, Oregon“Isn’t it the dream of every small internet startup to be swallowed up by a huge mega-conglomerate? Congrats, Yelp. Now I’m wondering how Google will destroy this site once they buy it…. ” -W.C. San Francisco, California“Anyone ever look at the comments on youtube videos? That is what is gonna happen here.” -Devon “Completely Appropriate™” F. San Francisco, California“If this happens, I’m deleting my profile.” -Eric “Hypeman E.” W. San Francisco, California“Yelp is about to get the sSHIT regulated out of it. goodbye shadiness.” -Joseph “the finest hat I’ve ever known” F.

Note To BBC: The Future Of Radio Is Not “This Content Is Not Available On Your Device”

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#New Media#web Related Posts For a media organization founded in the 1920s, the British Broadcasting Corporation has done a remarkable job of keeping up with the times. Its iPlayer media app is adored by those fortunate enough to have access to it. This week, the BBC launched an iPlayer spinoff that focuses on radio. It’s a great start, but if you’re eagerly awaiting radio’s future, you might want to hang tight.To be fair, iPlayer Radio is a solid offering. The attractively designed Web app is a focused way to stream live broadcasts from any of the BBC’s many channels. There’s a ton of content here, both live and archived. It’s all broken down by channel, category, schedule and – as you drill down further – topic area, personality, format and music genre. It’s a handy online portal into the BBC’s radio experience, much of which is available to users around the world.Geography is where the concept starts to fizzle. I live in the United States, so there are limitations on what I can hear on iPlayer Radio. For one thing, the iOS apps aren’t available here, so I have no choice but to point my iPhone and iPad browsers to the Web app. To the BBC’s credit, streaming a live broadcast works fairly well, and I can minimize the browser, launch another app and continue to listen uninterrupted. But even in the browser, I’m blocked from streaming certain shows in the archive. Bummer. I don’t know precisely what the future of radio looks like, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t include the sentence, “This content is not available on your device.”As well designed as the Web app is, it still feels a little fractured. Not all the audio content on iPlayer Radio is funneled to the same pop-up window, for example. Some of it plays natively in the browser tab in which you initiate the stream, while some of it launches a new player in pop-up window. If you’re already streaming from one of those pop-ups and then decide to switch to another channel, iPlayer Radio will fire up another pop-up. In many cases, you end up with concurrent streams of audio, which turn into a cacophonous trainwreck of sound until you manage to find one of the stop buttons. It’s weird.To improve this particular aspect of the user experience, the BBC might want to borrow a page from SoundCloud or Shuffler.fm, both of which feature a single universal audio player that keeps streaming no matter where you navigate and then switches to a new audio stream when you ask for it. Other bastions of radio innovation have good ideas as well – NPR, Stitcher Radio, TuneIn and Pandora come to mind.The BBC might be, as radio futurologist James Cridland put it, a bit late to the party on this, but it’s a valiant effort, on the whole. The BBC has some incredibly high-quality content, often containing deeply valuable, alternative viewpoints. This new initiative helps open it up to a wider global audience. The mobile apps (from what I can tell) look especially well designed, with innovative carousel navigation and an alarm to wake up to the BBC. It’s the mobile experience that has the greatest potential to steer radio’s future, especially as smartphones continue to find a place in cars.It’s worth noting that iPlayer Radio is only the player’s first iteration. The BBC knows that online streaming and mobile technology are going to be a central component of their future. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.

Hafiz Saeed barred from leading prayers in Lahore

first_imgLahore: Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) leader Hafiz Saeed has been barred from leading prayers at Lahore’s Jamia Masjid Qadsia as part of the Pakistan government’s crackdown on terror groups, the media reported on Friday. The development on Thursday night comes as Pakistani law enforcement agencies took 121 people into preventive detention and seized 182 madrasas earlier in the day. Police contingents were dispatched to the Jamia Qadsia Masjid to help the administration take control, Dawn news reported citing an informed source as saying. The police also locked the JuD’s and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation’s (FIF) Chauburji headquarters late Thursday night. The FIF is a charity wing of the JuD. The official said that security had been tightened at the outfit’s Muridke Markaz office where the government has appointed six administrators. The crackdown was launched on Tuesday amid tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad after the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 40 CRPF troopers. On Tuesday, the brother and son of JeM leader Masood Azhar along with 42 others affiliated with the banned outfit were arrested. The next day, at least two seminaries and assets belonging to the JuD and FIF were taken over by the authorities.last_img read more

Google will never sell any personal info to 3rd parties CEO Pichai

first_imgNew York: Google will never sell any personal information of its users to third parties, CEO Sundar Pichai has said, amidst growing global concern over the misuse of personal data by some social media giants. In an opinion piece Tuesday in The New York Times, he also said that privacy cannot be a “luxury good” that is only available to people who can afford to buy premium products and services. The 46-year-old Indian-origin CEO of Google said he believed that privacy was “one of the most important topics of our time.” Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra People today are rightly concerned about how their information is used and shared, yet they all define privacy in their own ways, he said. “To make privacy real, we give you clear, meaningful choices around your data. All while staying true to two unequivocal policies: that Google will never sell any personal information to third parties; and that you get to decide how your information is used,” Pichai said. Pichai said he has seen this first-hand as he talked to people in different parts of the world.

To the small-business owner who wants to start accepting credit card payments, privacy means keeping customer data secure. To the teenager sharing selfies, privacy could mean the ability to delete that data in the future,” Pichai said. He noted that privacy was personal, which makes it even more vital for companies to give people clear, individual choices around how their data is used. He said legislation will help companies like Google to work toward ensuring that privacy protections are available to more people around the world. “But we’re not waiting for it. We have a responsibility to lead. And we’ll do so in the same spirit we always have, by offering products that make privacy a reality for everyone,” Pichai said. Ideally, privacy legislation would require all businesses to accept responsibility for the impact of their data processing in a way that creates consistent and universal protections for individuals and society as a whole, he said. He said Google has worked hard to continually earn people’s trust by providing accurate answers and keeping their questions private. “We’ve stayed focused on the products and features that make privacy a reality for everyone,” he said in the opinion piece. “For everyone” is a core philosophy for Google; it’s built into our mission to create products that are universally accessible and useful. That’s why Search works the same for everyone, whether you’re a professor at Harvard or a student in rural Indonesia,” he said. “Our mission compels us to take the same approach to privacy. For us, that means privacy cannot be a luxury good offered only to people who can afford to buy premium products and services. Privacy must be equally available to everyone in the world,” Pichai underlined. He noted that even in cases where Google offered a paid product like YouTube Premium, which includes an ads-free experience, the regular version of YouTube has plenty of privacy controls built in. Pichai recalled that last week, Google announced significant new privacy features, including one-click access to privacy settings from all its major products and auto-delete controls that allows one to choose how long the person want data to be saved. “And to protect your data from security threats, we just introduced a security key built into Android phones that can provide two-factor authentication,” he said. In the future, Aritificial Intelligence (AI) will provide even more ways to make products more helpful with less data. With increased spending on digital advertising, Google and Facebook have become forces to reckon with as millions of users, especially from emerging markets like India, go online. But multiple instances of data breaches and user information leaks have brought increased scrutiny on many platforms from regulators and governments across the globe. These companies are now walking a tightrope as they attempt to balance user privacy with increased accountability as governments seek greater disclosures and controls over digital platforms.last_img read more

Packers Part Ways With Defensive Leader Charles Woodson

Charles Woodson, the Green Bay Packers’ veteran defensive stalwart, was released by the team Friday, his agent, Carl Poston, told NFL.com.“It’s part of the business,” Poston said. “I just talked to him. He sounds like he has a lot of football left. He’d like to play for a contender, win another Super Bowl.”Woodson was set to make $9 million in 2013 and would’ve counted for $10 million against the Packers’ salary cap.He signed a five-year, $55-million deal before the 2010 season. He missed nine games last season because of a broken right collarbone, but played in two playoff games.“We had a good run,” Woodson told ESPN 540 in Wisconsin via text message.Woodson was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1998. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him out of Michigan with the No. 4 overall pick.He’s the only player in NFL history with touchdowns off interceptions in six straight seasons, a feat he pulled off from 2006-11, and leads the league with nine touchdowns off interceptions since 2006.Woodson, 36, was productive for the Packers, but they have some tough decisions to make this offseason to manage the salary cap. Despite his age and recent injury, Woodson likely will be an in-demand free agent. He was injured last October, but bounced back in time to defend two passes in the playoffs.“Charles has been a stud in this league for 15 years, so whenever he’s on the field with us, he’s always a huge threat,” Packer linebacker A.J. Hawk said in January. “Not only is he a threat to make huge plays throughout the game, but quarterbacks, I think they know where he’s at every single play. He seems to know what receivers are running before they do. And I think he has an intimidation factor as well.” read more
