Klopp Vardy will always pose a threat

first_imgJurgen Klopp is wary of the threat posed by Jamie Vardy in Wednesday’s Premier League game.Vardy has an excellent record against the Reds with seven goals in his last meetings against them in the Premier League.The former England international has scored more goals against Liverpool than any other club and has scored in his last two visits to Anfield.And Klopp reckons his defence will have to be on form to stop the striker from finding the net again.“He’s quality, the speed he has and the finishing skills he has,” Klopp told reporters via FourFourTwo on Tuesday. “A few times we made it easy for him – Lucas Leiva, did he get an assist for that goal? So I would have scored that goal!“But Jamie is a fantastic striker really, each fibre of his body is on this decisive situation. He always waits for the ball over the shoulder and is always more involved in defending than in the past, but this doesn’t make it easy to defend against him.“He’s a massive threat, to be honest, but he’s not the only one in that team.

Not only from set pieces, a fine footballer.Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, LiverpoolMo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.Stunning work from Robbo. 💪Well-taken by Sadio. ⚽️Our opener 🆚 @LCFC earlier this season. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/2LRl1TaDoC— Liverpool FC (@LFC) January 28, 2019“[Demarai] Gray, [Ricardo] Pereira, a lot of really quality players. [Marc] Albrighton. Experienced and in tune with all the other players, or very skilful and quick. Having [Ben] Chilwell make the left flank up and down, it makes it all interesting.“I don’t know why Jamie has such a good record against us. I would say minus one goal because that was the only one I thought he shouldn’t have scored.“The best one I think he scored when they won the title, he got the ball on the halfway line and shot pretty much [immediately], yeah that was a good year for them. Very, very good player and that’s the main reason why he is such a threat.”last_img read more

Barros Schelotto The BocaRiver final will be eternal

first_imgManager Guillermo Barros Schelotto, revealed just how important a Boca vs River Copa Libertadores final will be for the world of football.The Boca-River Copa Libertadores final is fast approaching next Saturday, manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto wanted to give us an idea of how he is feeling right now as one of the two managers for this historic game.La Bombonera Stadium will open its doors on Saturday for the first leg of a two-match final, which will give us an idea of the magnitude that a game like this has around the world.We are truly convinced that Schelotto is right about one thing, none of us are ready to live an experience such as this one and there is a lot of expectation building up around this final.There are even reports from renowned journalist Martin Liberman, that confirm Russian president Vladimir Putin, considering the options of possibly traveling to Argentina for one of the two matches.Barros Schelotto is already mentally preparing for such a monumental task, a game in which both squads arrive at the very top of their game and they should decide which of both squads is worthy of playing the Club World Cup against Real Madrid in December.But most importantly, this final will decide which is both squads is the absolute king of the American Continent.Un lujo hablar con un entrenador que pronto estará en España. Guillermo Barros Schelotto: “Es la final eterna contra el rival eterno” https://t.co/du2fTpZLIU vía @marca @BocaJrsOficial— Diego Pico (@D_pico_) November 8, 2018The Boca Juniors manager offered an interview to Marca, where he discussed the importance of this match: “Playing this final is a huge merit for both Boca and River,” said Guillermo.“Facing these two matches won’t be an easy task for either of us, it will be a very close couple of games.”“I have no idea if this will be similar to what happened between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the two Champions League finals, but it has the potential to be very similar.”“Reaching a final like this is truly incredible… and it’s even more incredible having River Plate as the rival. In every single sense imaginable, from the build-up it musters until the importance that is a great final such as this one.”“We have reached this point, but we still haven’t won anything. Boca Juniors always demands victory and we have a worthy rival that always demands the same.”“This goes far beyond what we feel and any expectation, imagining what it would be like is very complicated because it’s never happened before. The fact that it’s a Boca-River Copa Libertadores final is very special indeed,” he added.River Plate v Boca Juniors - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2018Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).Habla Guillermo Barros Schelotto en la previa de la primera final de la Libertadores contra River pic.twitter.com/O7yFOpHtPd— Augusto Cesar (@Augustocesar22) November 7, 2018You have to understand that this will be a final against our most hated historic rival, reaching this stage against the biggest rival ever is simply fantastic for both Boca and River.Both clubs have managed to defeat incredibly competitive Brazilian clubs. Even though the Argentina National Team hasn’t done great things, this final speaks very well about the state of football in our country.More than the competition or that one of both clubs will lose this final, I believe this is a very positive thing for Argentina as a country.This is just as if Barcelona and Real Madrid played a Champions League final. The stadium is not that important, any of both clubs can win as a visitor and a local.What we need to do is try to get an advantage during the first match because doing that at La Bombonera makes things very different for the second match, but I really don’t think that having the first match at home will influence the final result for this final.Rivals that have this much history at this level, makes me realize that none of both have a real advantage.📊 Un superclásico mundial | Para la primera final de este sábado se duplicó la cantidad de solicitudes de acreditaciones de prensa y hubo pedidos de medios de más de 25 países para darle cobertura al evento.👉 Todos los detalles en https://t.co/DzXTrvsQ0o pic.twitter.com/bzw94av1So— Boca Jrs.

Womens Health Steps Up Social Sharing of Content

first_imgBumgarner says that exclusive content will be delivered to its Facebook community via a new social reader app, called Get More Women’s Health, that, once enabled, can be customized so readers can pick and choose what information is relevant to them, and ultimately what they would like to consume. “It’s a Facebook articles page that allows you to read information from the website right there in Facebook in an essentially ad-free format,” says Bumgarner. “It’s similar to the social reader for Washington Post. It’s connecting social media to news articles—some are updated every day and some a couple times a month. We’ve embedded it with lots of extra information.”There are bonus workouts integrated into the social reading app in addition to a body mass index calculator, a health advice column and exclusive videos, among other things. Bumgarner says content that might have previously been put behind a pay-wall, or not always readily available, will be integrated for the brand’s Facebook fans. While the content is hosted within Facebook itself, some articles or videos link directly back to the brand’s own website, driving traffic from the social site to its ad-supported Web product.The move to have this exclusive content available on social platforms comes from audience habits.“Changing a diet or changing your lifestyle, sometimes those things are more easily accomplished when you feel like you’re doing them with other people,” says Bumgarner. “That’s the real power of this social community out there—it unlocks something new and dynamic for a Women’s Health reader that is looking to improve their life. In a way, it’s an ability to connect with people around you and decide to make those improvements together. The idea of social media can become relatively meaningful.”Bucking a Paid Content ModelIn addition to offering free content to Facebook fans, Rodale is also giving individuals the opportunity to digitally read some of its magazine free of charge, too. As tablets grow increasingly popular, publishers have breathed a sigh of relief knowing that individuals will purchase content digitally, a ship that seemingly sailed as the Internet developed. Yet, starting with its October issue, Women’s Health will enable iPad subscribers to share articles with non-subscribers—even those who receive an article without a tablet will still have the tablet reading experience regardless of the device.“We’re using a kind of new technology that’s part of the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite,” says Bumgarner. “We think it’s great for Women’s Health because we have an amazingly social audience, and we can share what we’re doing in the tablet world with other people out there. They can get a taste of the tablet experience and as a brand it allows us to bring together the tablet edition, print content and social media.”If someone downloads the October Women’s Health edition, an individual can share a story across her own personal social media channels by clicking a button within the iPad edition that has been incorporated by Adobe. “The page posted looks exactly like the tablet experience,” adds Bumgarner. “If there’s a video on that page or a 360 degree animation, all of those things are included and in the same dimensions of the tablet page. It will feel like a tablet, being very vertical and having the same interactivity.”Once an individual views a shared tablet page, they have the ability to click to the table of contents and read one more article. If clicking for a third, a prompt to become a customer appears.According to the Audit Bureau of Circulation’s most recent Fas-Fax report for the period ending June 30, 2012, Women’s Health had a total paid, verified and analyzed non-paid circulation of over 1.6 million, selling about 300,000 copies at newsstands and almost 51,500 digital replicas.“We’re proud of what we’re doing with the tablet and we want to get it to the women’s audience,” says Bumgarner. “We know that not everyone has a tablet, but we do want to share what we’re doing. We thought this would be a great way to take the initiative and move it out into the world.” On the heels of a social summer, Rodale’s Women’s Health is looking to get even more engagement momentum through a variety of community outreach strategies aimed at cultivating its audiences.About 18 percent of the brand’s monthly Web traffic now comes from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. The brand’s Olympic Twitter Takeover campaign, which took place in July, generated over 30 million Twitter impressions. Additionally, WomensHealthMag.com has recently seen a 171 percent jump in referral traffic from Pinterest.“We really want to give something special to our social community because we feel like it’s an important part of the direction that Women’s Health is going in,” says Sean Bumgarner, Rodale’s interactive design director. “We’ve seen tremendous growth on all of our social outlets over the last year, and especially the last six months.”last_img read more

Ft Hunter Liggett Poised to Reach Net Zero

first_imgDesign work on a project to outfit dozens of building with solar panels and install a battery storage system at Fort Hunter Liggett is scheduled to begin shortly, putting the central California Army Reserve installation on a path to net zero energy use.The $22 million project, funded through the energy conservation investment program, includes 5 megawatts of photovoltaic power generation and a 3-megawatt-hour battery energy storage system. The 5-megawatt solar project will include about 500,000 square feet of roof-mounted photovoltaic arrays.Combined with a 2-megawatt array already operating and a 1-megawatt array under construction, the newest project will enable the 165,000-acre post to produce all the energy it consumes, Todd Dirmeyer, the installation’s energy manager, told the Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville Public Affairs.Fort Hunter Liggett will be the first installation to achieve net zero through an ECIP-funded project, according to the Corps’ Karen Moore.Since last year, the installation has been running a 1-megawatt-hour batter storage system, according to Dirmeyer.“The battery storage is part of the net zero equation — right now we charge it during the day with any excess solar we have, and we discharge it at night to help meet our off-peak loads — but it’s also part of our energy security solution,” Dirmeyer said. “We are working parallel paths toward net zero and energy security.”“I would like for us to be a model for this country and the world to follow. I think energy — to include the direct effects such as climate change — is probably the number one issue we have on this planet right now,” he said. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Infiniti QX Inspiration concept previews its first allelectric production vehicle

first_imgElectrification and SUVs are all the rage right now, so it’s fitting that Infiniti’s first foray into the EV market will be with an electric SUV. The Infiniti QX Inspiration concept, which debuted Monday at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, gives us an idea of how that eventual production vehicle will appear. In short, it looks great, thanks to a well-done front fascia that makes a striking first impression. Infiniti’s designers were able to figure out how to design a fetching, grille-free electric vehicle. In the grille’s absence is a light-up, three-dimensional Infiniti logo framed by the outline of a grille that’s complemented by complex sculpting. This execution lies in stark contrast to other EVs, which simply look like they’re victims of rhinectomies. The complex sculpting continues into the doors. An upswept, carved-out character line prevents the SUV’s tall doors from looking slab-sided. The overall profile is beautified with a tapered, floating roofline that falls into an aggressively angled D-pillar garnished with a vermilion signature line. Don’t be surprised if that swath of vermilion ends up on the D-pillars of future Infinitis. Out back lies a full-width, arching tail lamp that echoes the look of the rear lights on the Audi Q8. That’s not a bad thing, because overall, the QX Inspiration is quite handsome, especially with a set of 22-inch wheels rounding out the exterior. The lack of a space-devouring internal-combustion engine up front meant Infiniti’s designers could create a cab-forward design, while still having small front and rear overhangs. As a result, the QX Inspiration boasts a wheelbase of 112.2 inches. That’s comparable to a midsize crossover, but the QX concept’s 183.1-inch length is more in concert with that of a compact crossover. Combine that with a 64.2-inch height, and you have the makings of a vehicle with an impressively roomy interior that’s also dressed up quite nicely. The panoramic sunroof is louvered with Japanese red cedar, so when sunlight filters through, you get a film-noir effect. That louvered theme is repeated on the center console, which features Tuscan Bianco Carrara marble that fades and strakes into black as it approaches the display screen at the leading edge of center console. Enlarge ImageCoach doors open to reveal an interior decked out in wood, leather and dot-quilted cloth. Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow That screen is surrounded by four other displays: one inside the steering wheel hub, two in the extra-wide instrument cluster and one ahead of the front passenger. The sofa-style back seat, meanwhile, is purposely devoid of tech touches in order to give rear passengers a respite from screen overload. Instead, there’s a flower vase at the center console’s trailing edge, right in front of a cushion-mounted control panel, along with a desktop-style lamp adorning the right-rear door. Underneath that posh interior and its even posher floor — upholstered in suede — sits a battery pack that sends power to four electric motors, two at the front axle and two at the rear. Beyond the fact that this is an all-wheel-drive, electric SUV, that’s about all the powertrain info Infiniti is offering at this time. The only other tidbit is that this concept is also designed for autonomous driving, which means its pedals and screen-equipped steering wheel are designed to retract whenever the driver places the car into its autonomous setting. Infiniti is mum on when we’ll see the production version, but it wouldn’t be far-fetched to expect it to land at some point during the 2020 auto show season.

China pushes Britain to let Huawei be part of 5G rollout

first_img Huawei’s P30 looks like fantastic forbidden fruit Share your voice Huawei CEO thanks US for ‘promoting’ its 5G program 3:32 Tags Now playing: Watch this: It’s decision time for Britain on China’s Huawei and the 5G build-out. Dan Kitwood / Getty Images China wants Britain to let Huawei play a role in developing its 5G network, suggesting that Britain can’t let fear get in the way of “win-win cooperation.”Liu Xiaoming, China’s ambassador to the UK, wrote about his country’s “good track record on security” in a Sunday Telegraph op-ed.He suggested that Britain must resist pressure and decide “independently based on its national interests.” The US has pressured its European allies not to adopt Huawei’s 5G equipment, saying the gear could be used to spy for China. Huawei denies the allegations. Politics Internet Services 18 Photos 2 The op-ed follows last week’s report that the scandal-laden Chinese telecom would be restricted to “noncore” parts of the next generation cellular infrastructure, which prompted the US Homeland Security Department and UK lawmakers to note that the company could still pose security risks. Lui acknowledged security risks must be taken seriously, but can’t “be allowed to incite fear” or hurt cooperation. He highlighted Huawei’s £2 billion ($2.6 billion) and 7,500-job contribution to the British economy as evidence of what they can achieve.Responding to the op-ed, a UK government spokesperson repeated its statement from last week, noting that it’s conducting an “evidence-based review.”Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.First published at 5:11 a.m. PT.Updated at 5:29 a.m. PT: Adds UK government response.

FCC chairman addresses 5G safety concerns in letters to lawmakers

first_img Share your voice FCC 6 Mobile FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says lawmakers need not worry about 5G safety concerns.  / Getty Images FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is trying to quell fears among lawmakers that 5G radios are dangerous to health. On Thursday, the chairman sent a series of letters to lawmakers in response to inquiries about health concerns related to 5G that been sent to him in the past couple of months. In each of the letters he said that the FCC places a “high priority on the safety of wireless services and devices.” He said the agency’s guidelines for RF exposure are derived from guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the industry group the IEEE and the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. “The FCC relies on the expertise of health and safety agencies and organizations with respect to appropriate levels of RF exposure,” he said. “These institutions have extensive experience and knowledge in RF-related issues and have spent a considerable amount of time evaluating published scientific studies that can inform appropriate exposure limits.”The response comes as concerns about the safety of 5G wireless technology has been increasing among lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Three Congressmen in the past two months have sent letters to the agency expressing their concerns about potential negative health effects due to exposure to radio frequencies used in delivering 5G wireless service. Representatives Andy Kim, a Democrat from New Jersey,  Thomas Suozzi, a Democrat from New York, and Peter Defazio, a Democrat from Oregon, say their constituents are worried that 5G radios, which are being deployed atop street lights every few blocks in many communities, may have negative effects that are still unknown. “Small cell towers are being installed in residential neighborhoods in close proximity to houses throughout my district,” said Rep. Suozzi in his letter. “I have heard instances of these antennae being installed on light poles directly outside the window of a young child’s bedroom. Rightly so, my constituents are worried that should this technology be proven hazardous in the future, the health of their families and value of their properties would be at serious risk.”5G, which refers to the fifth generation of cellular technology, is the next big thing in wireless technology and it’s been hailed as the foundation for other big trends like self-driving cars and streaming virtual reality.Unlike previous generations of wireless, 5G will require up to five times the amount of infrastructure as 3G or 4G deployments. The big promise of 5G — a massive leap in speed — requires the use of super high-frequency radio waves, called millimeter-wave spectrum, that are limited by range and obstructions like trees. The result is a network requiring radios on every city block, versus 4G gear that transmits signals over miles.What this means is that there could be nearly 800,000 of these so-called small cells deployed in the US between 2018 and 2026 to provide 5G, according to a study commissioned by the wireless industry trade group CTIA. In a separate report, CTIA estimates that roughly 323,000 cell sites were in service at the end of 2017.Rep. Kim said in his letter that the FCC noted that the agency has not updated its regulations regarding radiofrequency RF safety since 1996. He also pointed out that the current RF safety guidelines don’t account for the higher frequencies that 5G service uses or the fact that so many more radios are needed to achieve 5G service coverage. He asked the FCC to answer a series of questions about what research has been conducted as it relates to the safety of 5G.”Despite the close proximity to sensitive areas where these high-band cells will be installed, little research has been conducted to examine 5G safety,” he said. He added that the FCC has admitted that its guidelines need to be reassessed with respect to the use of newer wireless technologies. Rep. Defazio noted that the Government Accountability Office made a similar recommendation in 2012. “It is unacceptable that six years later the FCC still has not conducted a reassessment of its 1996 guidelines,” Defazio said in his letter.In his letters, Pai noted that the FCC has had an open proceeding to address updating its guidelines since 2013. And he assured the lawmakers the agency is working through the “voluminous” record to see if anything needs to be changed or updated. But he did not address specific concerns brought up in the letters. He also offered to bring congressional staff into the FCC’s testing facility in Columbia, Maryland so that they could “see and speak with our engineers and technicians as they operate the RF testing equipment.”Pai’s response is consistent with comments he made to the press in April. When asked about the issue during a press conference in April, Pai acknowledged that the nature of 5G “will be very different” than  4G, since it relies on small cells. But he said that the radios operate at much lower power than traditional cell sites. He added that “from that perspective, I am confident that in consultation with the FDA, which is the lead on this issue, that the technology will be safe.” Tags Commentslast_img read more

Verizons antirobocall service will be automatically enabled on Android phones

first_img Post a comment 0 The free version of Call Filter will block robocalls, sending them automatically to voicemail, and put a warning label on potential spam calls. Verizon said auto-enrollment will begin Tuesday for postpaid customers with eligible devices. Prepaid Android customers and iPhone users can enroll in the free service by downloading the Call Filter app. Verizon started offering a free version of its spam- and robocall-blocking tools to customers in March. The wireless carrier also offers a paid version called Call Filter Plus, which costs $2.99 a month per line. The paid service offers additional tools like the ability to identify unknown callers by name and a spam number lookup feature.The number of unwanted robocalls skyrocketed 46% from 2017 to 2018. A January report from Hiya, a caller ID service, said there were 26.3 billion robocalls made in the US in 2018. The number breaks down to an average of 10 monthly calls per person. The FCC has said frustration over robocalls is the No. 1 complaint it receives from consumers, amounting to hundreds of thousands of grievances filed with the agency every year.

BJP women netas dont want their husbands to meet PM Mayawati takes

first_imgBSP supremo Mayawati took a potshot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.MONEY SHARMA/AFP/Getty ImagesAhead of the last and final phase of the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, politicians continue to mud-sling each other.Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati took a potshot at Narendra Modi after the Prime Minister accused her of “shedding crocodile tears” over the Alwar gang-rape. The BSP chief stated that women legislators in the Bharatiya Janata Party fear that if PM Modi meets their husbands, they will leave their wives as PM Modi did.Addressing a press conference, Mayawati said, “In BJP, married women leaders get scared when they see their husbands around PM Modi. They fear that this Modi will separate them from their husbands.” Mayawati said that Modi could not be expected to respect others sisters and wives when he had left his own wife for political gains.This is the first time that any political leader has criticised the Prime Minister’s personal life.Accusing Modi of playing politics over the Alwar rape case, Mayawati slammed the Prime Minister for showing sympathy for Dalits and said that his words rang hollow. “If Modi had genuinely been a backward caste person, he would not have objected to bungalows owned by Dalit and OBC people. He changes his caste every day for electoral gains,” she added.Mayawati said that Modi had tried to break the Samajwadi Party (SP)-BSP alliance and would earlier address her as ‘behenji’ but when he realised that the alliance would not break, he has started addressing her as ‘bua’.”The ‘sanskari’ people in the country address me as ‘behenji’. Even my parents call ‘behenji’ and so does Akhilesh Yadav,” she stated.Earlier on Sunday, May 12, Prime Minister Modi asked why BSP supremo Mayawati did not withdraw support to the ruling Congress in Rajasthan after a Dalit woman was gang-raped in front of her husband in Alwar on April 26. Addressing an election rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Kushinagar, PM Modi said: “A Dalit girl was gang-raped in Rajasthan which is being ruled by the ‘naamdar’ (Congress) with the support of BSP. Both the parties are trying to suppress the matter. The daughters of this state are asking ‘behenji’ why hasn’t she taken back her support to the Congress after the incident.”Meanwhile, Mayawati appealed to people to vote for the alliance in the final phase of elections. Uttar Pradesh will go to polls in the sixth phase on May 19. Results will be declared on May 23.last_img read more

IBM sacks 300 employees from services dept may hire talent in automation

first_imgAn employee speaks on a mobile phone as she eats her lunch at the cafeteria in the Infosys campus in the southern Indian city of Bangalore September 23, 2014.Reuters fileTech giant IBM recently laid off 300 employees from its software services division to make room for people with upgraded skills in automation, machine learning and cloud computing. The development comes days after US-based Cognizant cut off at least 200 mid-senior level positions from its India offices creating ripples in the IT industry. IBM has taken the decision “to reinvent itself” and meet the changing needs of customers.”This in accordance with IBM’s strategy to re-invent itself to better meet the changing requirements of our business and to pioneer new high-value services. IBM “remains committed to being an essential part of its (India’s) growth,” the company’s official statement said, according to Economic Times.The entire IT industry is currently doing away with the traditional software roles and undertaking training employees or hiring fresh talent which has upgraded skillset on emerging technologies. IBM said that it took the decision after a reassessment of the current workforce and an increasing demand of adding workforce to the cloud, artificial intelligence and other evolving areas. It added that several employees are even being re-trained to be able to meet the new challenges.Notwithstanding the claims made by multinational as well as India-based IT firms of increased hirings, a report by the McKinsey & Company suggested that nearly half of the workforce in the IT industry will become irrelevant in next two years. This poses a serious challenging to India’s IT industry which employs nearly 3.9 million people.The fact remains that new technologies will also add 14 lakh new jobs to India alone by 2027 but for that, the firms would have to retrain its existent workforce to cater to the demands of their clients.  ReutersEven as the IT firms have been reluctant to state that automation is slowly replacing the human workforce in the sector, the companies are looking for a replacement of basic jobs such as in services sector that no longer addresses their needs. The retraining of a majority of the existent employees could be an extensive exercise which is not preferred by the tech giants in India or elsewhere.last_img read more
