first_imgNew Zealand need to win more playing sessions in order to get a favourable result in the second Test starting at the Eden Gardens on Friday, New Zealand coach Mike Hesson has said.”The game got away from us in a couple of sessions (during the first Test at Kanpur). We dominated for a decent amount of time. We need to create pressure for a longer period,” Hesson told New Zealand radio on Wednesday.Hesson, 41, said it is a challenge playing in subcontinental conditions – markedly different from other parts of the world.”It is always a challenge playing abroad. The boys have been given an off day today. We are a young group and the boys have never played in these conditions before. Fatigue plays a big part here,” he said.”It is how you execute your skills under extreme fatigue. For the bowlers, it is all about finding that optimum pace in trying conditions. For the batsmen it is all about getting your game plan right.”Hesson was full of praise for middle-order batsman Luke Ronchi and bowling all-rounder Mitchell Santner who were the takeaways for the visitors in the 197-run loss. (Injured Jimmy Neesham to miss Kolkata Test)”I am delighted for Luke. He has been travelling with the team for a while now and is a great tourist. He is a player with a lot of skill. More importantly, the skills required here are to his liking as he knows the conditions better than many,” Hesson said.advertisementRonchi, who scored a fighting 80 in the second innings of the first Test sharing a 102-run stand with Santner, has played for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.On Santner, Hesson said, “He is in his early days. He has been very consistent for us and his overall performance will help him develop as a player especially when you are playing in such adverse conditions.”Santner returned with a match haul of 5-173 besides his batting exploits in the second innings.Hesson welcomed the return of off-spinner Jeetan Patel into the side saying his experience will help the side.”It’s great to have him back. He was not there for a while and now his experience and knowledge of the game will help the younger crop.”Patel’s flight, however, got cancelled and the 36-year-old is now expected to join the team after midnight on Wednesday.All-rounder Jimmy Neesham has also been ruled out of the second Test because of his rib injury that had kept him out of the Kanpur Test too.last_img read more

first_imgZiva Dhoni once again made her presence felt at the Edgbaston cricket ground on Tuesday as she cheered for Team India in their World Cup 2019 match against Bangladesh and her team won.Ziva was in the stands along with her mother Sakshi, as India produced another clinical performance to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup.Sakshi posted a series of pictures and a video of Ziva screaming “Go India” on her daughter’s Instagram account. Ziva and Sakshi have attended most of the 8 games that Team India has played in the tournament so far.On Tuesday, vice-captain Rohit Sharma’s dream run with the bat and Jasprit Bumrah’s brilliance at the death helped India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs to become the second team after Australia to reach the last four with 13 points from 8 matches.It was Rohit’s (104 off 92 balls) record-equalling fourth century in a single edition and his 180-run opening stand with KL Rahul (77 off 92 balls) that laid the foundation for a par-score of 314 for nine after India opted to bat.The chase wasn’t impossible but Shakib Al Hasan (66 off 74 balls) didn’t get any notable support from the other end as Bangladesh were bundled out for 286 in 48 overs. Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya were the stars with the ball with the duo finishing with 4 and 3 wickets respectively.India have now reached the semi-finals in 3 successive World Cups. They won the tournament in 2011, lost to Australia in the semi-finals in 2015 and now have the chance to win their 3rd World Cup.advertisementBangladesh will next take on Pakistan on July 5 while India finish their group stage with a game against Sri Lanka at Leeds on July 6.Also Read | WATCH: Sakshi Dhoni steals Ziva Dhoni’s pram for a joyrideAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Ziva Dhoni has a fun day out as India beat West Indieslast_img read more

first_imgThe Big 12 had some wacky news on Friday that it is reinstating its conference championship game, but it also had some really good news. That news was that it would distribute $304 million to its 10 teams for a total of $30.4M per team (#Math).This is the third most of the power five conferences behind the SEC and Big 10.This is a jump from last year of around $6M per team on average, and it’s probably not going to be that much less than what most SEC teams make. Here’s why. When the SEC announces its revenue distribution ($31M last year, probably $35-40M this year), it includes third tier rights. That is, content that is distributed in the SEC’s case to the SEC Network.These Big 12 numbers do not. So Texas’ third tier rights are tied up in the Longhorn Network and worth $15M which means Texas made ~$45M this year. That’s pretty good. It’s more than probably every SEC school other than maybe Alabama which can even sell its beyond-third tier content for a lot of money.A few years ago, OSU’s third tier rights sold for around $5M. Last year it sold them for $5.5M. Which means that figure is probably higher by now. I’d say in the neighborhood of $6M (this falls in line with what the Big 12 reported two years ago that its teams’ third tier money is between $3M and $15M <—- Texas).So OSU is making probably over $36M from the digital and radio distribution of its athletic content.  That’s insane. And it’s also in the neighborhood of what SEC schools are making. Remember, last year SEC schools got $31M plus whatever they could get from their beyond-third tier rights (golf, swimming etc.)We’re not even touching ticketing, concessions etc. It’s one reason the Cowboys are one of the 30 most lucrative athletic departments in the country.So where does all this dough come from?Brett McMurphy noted that the SEC money comes from the following places. You can presume the Big 12’s money comes from the same places save the fact that there is no Big 12 Network (and never will be).The total amount of the distribution is composed of revenue generated from the SEC Network, televised football, bowl games, the SEC football championship, televised basketball, the SEC men’s basketball tournament, NCAA championships and a supplemental surplus distribution.Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby actually said last year that each school would be getting upwards of $44M a year by the time the TV contracts were to run out in the mid 2020s. And now with the implementation of the Big 12 title game which Bowlsby said would be worth ~$3M per school. that number could be even higher.So this is a big deal for OSU and other teams in the Big 12. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t explore leaving because I think we all know this ship is going down either soon or when the contracts with ESPN and Fox run out. But if you stay, at least you’re guaranteed a hefty payday every June.Conference title game is the big news, but this is pretty darn important. Not nearly the gap we thought. https://t.co/dpSJBEdEbx— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) June 3, 2016 If you're looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

first_imgLandon Donovan Dos a cero? Leon reveals Donovan’s uniform number Thomas Floyd @thomasfloyd10 Last updated 1 year ago 01:06 1/15/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Landon Donovan USA Mexico Jamie Sabau Liga MX León United States The American legend will wear No. 20 for the Liga MX side, perhaps alluding to the 2-0 scoreline that haunted El Tri during his U.S. career Having played a part in many a “dos a cero” match during the USA-Mexico rivalry, Landon Donovan can now remind Liga MX fans of that scoreline every time he steps on the field for Club Leon.The American legend will wear No. 20 for Leon after announcing his return from retirement Friday, in a potential reference to the series of 2-0 victories the U.S. recorded against El Tri during his decade-plus playing for the national team.The U.S. managed to win all four of its home World Cup qualifiers against Mexico from 2001 to 2013 by that 2-0 scoreline, with Donovan starting three of those matches. While the streak ended with a 2-1 loss to Mexico in 2016, Donovan seems to be keeping the legend of “dos a cero” alive.

The all-time MLS leader in goals and assists, Donovan initially retired in 2014 and played just nine matches during a return to the LA Galaxy in 2016. But the six-time MLS Cup champion broke the surprising news in a tweet to Leon president Jesus Martinez on Friday.”I loved the city, it’s the best fans. Club Leon is a historic & winning team,” Donovan tweeted. “I don’t believe in walls. I want to go to Mexico, wear green & win trophies with Leon. We’ll see each other very soon!”It’s worth noting Donovan’s previous numbers are already taken on the Leon roster. His preferred No. 10 belongs to Mexico international Luis Montes, while the No. 26 he wore for the Galaxy in 2016 is taken by Andres Mosquera. Donovan also wore No. 21 early in his career, but Maximiliano Cerato has that number occupied.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Wednesday fixed for final disposal a plea challenging the election of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to the state assembly for alleged non-disclosure of pending criminal cases against him in the nomination papers. A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose said that it will list the plea for final disposal on July 23. The bench was hearing a petition filed by one Satish Ukey seeking annulment of Fadnavis’s election to the Maharashtra Assembly on the ground of alleged non-disclosure of all pending criminal cases against him. Also Read – Balakot strikes show major shift in govt’s handling of terror attacks: IAF chief Earlier, the apex court had issued a notice to the chief minister on an appeal by Ukey against a Bombay High Court order which had dismissed his plea challenging the election of Fadnavis. The petitioner had alleged that Fadnavis, in his election affidavit filed in 2014, had failed to disclose the pendency of two criminal cases against him. It was contended that the chief minister did not disclose the information as required of him under the election law and the non-disclosure of these two pending criminal cases was in violation of Section 125A of the Representation of People’s Act of 1951 and constituted an offence in itself.

Jayalalithaa has urged the Centre to pressurise Sri Lanka to ensure the rehabilitation of internally displaced Tamils back in their original settlement ‘at least now’ and also devolve equal powers on par with the Sinhalese.Unfurling the national flag on the 66th Independence Day celebrations at the historic Fort St George on Wednesday, Ms Jayalalithaa said, “At a time when we are celebrating Independence Day, our Tamil brethren in Sri Lanka are suffering in relief camps in that country.” “The Centre should at least now compel the Sri Lankan government to take steps and ensure that Tamils, housed in relief camps, are sent back to their places of origin by devolving equal powers on par with the Sinhalese,” she said. “As far as agriculture is concerned, foodgrain production has shot up to 106 lakh metric tonnes in 2011-12 from 76 lakh metric tonnes in 2010-11,” she said. (Deccan Chronicle) In her nearly 20-minute address, the chief minister listed out the achievements of the 15-month-old AIADMK regime and numerous schemes launched by her since her government assumed office in May 2011. Ms Jayalalithaa said her government had set several records on various fronts. read more

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Source: The Explainer/SoundCloudThis year the Department of Communications launched a public consultation on new law to regulate harmful content online.This consultation has now closed and the department told TheJournal.ie that the results are being examined in preparation for the development of legislation. “Age verification will be considered in the context of the forthcoming legislation,” a spokesperson said. How effective is the UK law expected to be?Critics of the new UK restrictions have pointed out that teenagers could still easily bypass them, or just use porn-hosting platforms that are not covered by the law.Sites like Twitter, Reddit and Imgur, for example, will not have to administer the scheme as more than one third of a site’s content must be pornographic to bring it under the legislation.TheJournal.ie did a quick internet search of the phrase ‘porn on Twitter’ to test how accessible this content is on the platform and was served a long list of profiles that contained uncensored explicit images and videos.Even on sites that are affected, teens would still be able to use virtual private networks (VPNs), which make it seem like your computer is located elsewhere.Data protectionThere are concerns about data leaks because the government is not telling pornography websites how to verify age. That will be up to the individual sites and they will be responsible for the data they collect as part of this.Experts have said it may lead to people being outed if a site collects their email addresses and also links those in its data collation with their preferences or searches. This is the kind of information that could, in theory, be used to extort money from people.Caroline West, a doctoral scholar in sexuality at DCU, told The Explainer that many people may not be comfortable with giving their passport details to these kinds of websites.  Monday 29 Apr 2019, 6:10 AM THE IRISH GOVERNMENT will consider a similar system to the UK’s so-called ‘porn block’ law as part of new legislation on online safety.As part of legislation passed in the UK in 2017, pornography sites will be expected, from 15 July, to have a robust age-verification system in place to ensure its UK users are over 18.Although this will be regulated by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the sites themselves will be allowed to decide exactly how they do it.Options include requiring adult users to buy a special card over the counter at a newsagents, where they will be asked to show photo ID to verify their age. The card will have a code on it that can be used to access the site.Some sites will ask users to provide a scan of a passport or driver’s licence which will then be verified by a third party while others may ask for credit card details as proof a person is over 18.In the most recent episode of The Explainer podcast, TheJournal.ie took a look at this UK legislation and the likelihood that Ireland will follow suit.  Irish government to consider similar legislation to UK ‘porn block’ law From July pornography sites will be required to have robust age-verification systems in place for UK users. Sites like that are really targeted by moral campaigners who are opposed to porn even existing in the first place so if you have this treasure trove of data of people’s personal details just sitting there waiting to be hacked, that’s very attractive to a lot of hackers or to a lot of people who want to shame people for their porn use.She referenced the 2015 leak by hackers of the names of 30 million people who had used infidelity website Ashley Madison. Serious shortcomings were identified in the site’s security afterwards and it was subsequently fined $1.6 million for the data breach.Despite the massive breach, thousands of people are still signing up to the site every day. “And do we really want people in the government or specific agencies knowing what we as consenting adults are looking at on the internet?” West said. “Adults should be able to keep their fantasies to themselves unless they consent to sharing it so it’s quite a risk for adults.”Mindgeek, the company which owns PornHub, YouPorn and RedTube, has developed its own system called AgeID which it hopes will be adopted by others. This system involves adults having to upload scans of their passports or drivers licences.These documents are then verified by a third-party. All of the information will be encrypted and the company has said the system will not keep track of how each user’s accounts are used. AgeID said the way its method of storing login and password information works means it doesn’t have a database of email addresses.Sex educationThe British government said it wants the UK to be the safest place in the world to be online and these new laws will help to achieve this. Ministers have cited research by the NSPCC which found children were as likely to stumble across pornography online as they were to search for it.The UK government has said it hopes the age-restriction scheme will help, in particular, to prevent instances where children have seen inappropriate content in a pop-up window or through a link they were sent.  However critics have accused the government of taking a shortsighted approach to the issue. West said research about children watching porn is often “conflicted”, but there is one conclusion that is always consistent – better sex education is vital.“Everywhere where there is decent sex education young people watch less porn and they feel less conflicted about it. They also have healthier relationships and have more of a switched-on opinion of consent.” Apr 29th 2019, 6:11 AM https://jrnl.ie/4606654 Image: Shutterstock/Dean Drobot Image: Shutterstock/Dean Drobot Share Tweet Email1 56 Comments By Michelle Hennessy Listen on iPhone/iPad 22,281 Views Short URL Listen on Androidlast_img read more

Pablo Machin happy with Sevilla win

first_imgPablo Machin was pleased with his Sevilla side’s 3-1 over Ujpest in Budapest in the return leg of their Europa League second round qualifierHeading into the second with a 4-0 aggregate lead could have caused a lapse in concentration, but Sevilla proved themselves to be above such concerns with a fine display in Hungary that saw them book their place in the next round with a comfortable 3-1 win.A brace from Pablo Sarabia and a Luis Muriel strike enabled Sevilla to set-up a tie against Lithuanian side Zalgiris Vilnius.“We did what we had to do, which all Sevilla fans were hoping for, so I’m happy,” Machin told Sevilla’s radio station, via Football-Espana.“Perhaps it might have seemed easy, but the circumstances from the first leg made it appear easy.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“The best thing, apart from getting through to the next round, is that we didn’t pick up any injuries.“I think our next opponents Zalgiris play on artificial grass. That could be quite significant and we’ll have to analyse it. The tie will be more difficult than this one.”Sevilla will be taking their Spanish Super Cup clash with Barcelona seriously.“We don’t need to look at the Super Cup as an obstacle because it’s a chance to win a trophy.“It takes a lot to get there and we have to approach it in the best way possible, to try and compete well, but we won’t just leave the Europa League tie to one side.”last_img read more

A third believe financial wellbeing benefits are very important

first_imgA third (33%) of respondents believe that financial wellbeing benefits, such as a pension, holiday and bonus pay, are very important when considering where to work, according to research by UK consultancy Barnett Waddingham.Its Why BWell: where’s your head at? report, which surveyed 3,000 full and part-time employees between the ages of 18 and 65, also found that 49% would make use of financial wellbeing benefits, for example employer loans or financial education, if they were offered in the workplace.More than half (54%) of respondents state that they do not have access to a wellbeing strategy at work, compared to 21% who do. Two-fifths (40%) of employees believe a wellbeing strategy is designed to improve productivity, 53% feel it helps to keep employees fit and healthy, 34% think is aims to reduce sickness absence and 31% feel it should improve happiness in the workplace.Less than a third (29%) of respondents somewhat agree that their organisation provides benefits that will support them if something were to go wrong; a further 36% state that protection benefits are moderately important when deciding whether to work for an organisation. In addition, 24% somewhat agree that they value the flexibility to change their protection benefits.A quarter (25%) cite that they have access to a range of benefits to take care of their dependants; however, 19% somewhat disagree that they have benefits that support older dependants or parents.Under a third (30%) somewhat agree that they feel comfortable discussing mental health at work, whereas 17% somewhat disagree. Also, 14% of respondents strongly disagree that managers in their organisation are equipped to effectively deal with employees’ mental health issues, while only 8% strongly agree with this statement.Laura Matthews (pictured), workplace wellbeing consultant at Barnett Waddingham, said: “Mental health is beginning to get some of the attention it deserves in workplaces and thankfully, more employers are now looking out for the signs of issues such as stress and anxiety. This is great progress, but as part of the same conversation, employers should be thinking more broadly about employee happiness and the positive impact this can have on all areas of the business, from productivity and innovation to profitability and corporate reputation.”In terms of presenteeism, 30% of respondents somewhat agree that they feel under pressure to be at work when they are not feeling well; this increases to 54% for respondents aged between 18 and 29, 49% for respondents aged between 30 and 49 and 40% for those aged 50 or above.Only 17% of respondents feel that their overall wellbeing is very important to their employer, compared to 36% who believe it is moderately important, and 24% who think it is neither important or unimportant. Half (51%) also believe that the overall level of employee wellbeing within their organisation is moderate or medium, compared to 15% who feel it is high and 17% who think it is low.A third (33%) somewhat agree that they feel recognised and rewarded for the contributions that they make to their organisation; 28% neither agree or disagree with this and 15% somewhat disagree. More than one in 10 (14%) of respondents cite that they are very happy at work.Almost two-fifths (39%) of employees feel they can achieve the right balance between their work and personal lives, and 34% somewhat agree that they are able to switch off from work outside of their normal working hours. A third (33%) state that flexibility within a job role is very important for them, compared to 41% who think this is moderately important and 22% who feel it is neither important or unimportant.Just under half (47%) of respondents would prefer to be communicated to about wellbeing and benefits face-to-face, for example in a meeting. This compares to 20% who prefer communications via their line manager, 28% who like to receive emails and 6% who value paper media, such as posters and leaflets.last_img read more

first_imgThroughout the turmoil on the national publishing landscape, the regional magazine market was one of the few bright spots in the industry. Taking advantage of a lower barrier to entry, regional publishers over the first six months continued launching print editions—including many vertical launches such as business journals, home/design magazines and luxury titles. According to MediaFinder.com, regionals was the second biggest category in 2008 in terms of launches (there were 24, although that’s down from 42 launches a year ago).But as the bottom fell out of the U.S. economy, some of the ill effects that rocked the national market began spilling over into regionals, too. “No one in the world is immune to what’s going on right now, but regionals certainly are less vulnerable than a lot of national magazines,” says Michael Carr, president of Las Vegas-based regional publisher Greenspun Media. “When times are challenging, readers want to know what’s important to them within five miles of their front door. That’s where regional magazines, which are closer to the markets they serve, make a difference.”Greenspun, which has magazines in 19 luxury markets, has felt the pinch. This fall, the company reduced its workforce in a streamlining initiative (at Greenspun and subsidiary Niche Media) that reduced its printing operation from five locations to two and its printing operation from “several” locations to one, says Carr. Niche Media also folded Atlanta Peach in early December. Confronting Challenges Generally, regional publications have responded differently to economic slowdowns than national publications because regional advertisers are not impacted by the same issues as national advertisers, says Kim Mac Leod, president of Regional Media Advisors, an M&A advisory company for the regional market. Each type of regional magazine—city or area-focused lifestyle, alternative newsweeklies, business journals and special interest, to name a few—has its own challenges. For instance, regionals whose revenues have been derived primarily from severely hit advertising categories have been impacted most. According to the Jordan, Edmiston Group managing director Tom Pecht, there were three big “waves” of advertisers that “turned down their faucets” in 2008: real estate, banking and upscale jewelry.“Regionals that have been reliant on real estate advertising, especially in places like Florida and Arizona, were the first to feel the effects,” Pecht says. “So many had become dependent on developing sections, like multiple-page supplements, that were pure real estate. Now, they’re taking a hit there. If you were tied to certain areas in which the advertising faucets have dried up, you’re going to be swimming upstream for a while, trying to keep your head above water.”Even general interest city titles haven’t been immune. “Our advertising revenues, both national and local, are down double digits year-to-year,” says Emmis Publishing president Gary Thoe. Emmis—which publishes several regional magazines including Texas Monthly, Indianapolis Monthly, Atlanta and Los Angeles—this summer reduced 4.5 percent of its workforce and, in November, cut corporate salaries 3 percent for employees who earn more than $50,000 per year. “Like other publishers, we are dealing with smaller revenue streams,” Thoe says. “It is very difficult to forecast even the next 60 days, much less the next year.”Long-established regional titles with paid circulations, while “hurting to some degree,” are faring better than newer titles that serve super niche markets, says City and Regional Magazine Association executive director James Dowden. “Our sense is that member ad page counts are flat to negative 6 percent to 7 percent through November,” Dowden tells FOLIO:. “That’s not bad considering what we are hearing about nationals and other media. However, we are all concerned about going forward as consumers continue to hold back.”Even some of the older titles are having a challenging time, especially in saturated local markets. “Oklahoma Today is in its 53rd year, and as recently as 20 years ago we were the only game in town,” says publisher Joan Henderson. “Now there are more than 10 free magazines in our market. We have to stay sharp and always work on our visibility.”M&A Activity SlowingWhile regional M&A activity continued quietly into the third quarter—including the September sale of Wyoming-based tourism media group Yellowstone Journal Corporation, which publishes Yellowstone Journal, to Backpacker publisher Active Interest Media—but slowed by the fourth quarter due to the tightening credit markets.Regional titles tend not to be as debt-leveraged as b-to-b publishers. “A good deal of regional magazines are still owned by entrepreneurs. As long as these books aren’t costing their owners any cash to subsidize their efforts then there’s no big rush to sell,” Pecht says. “I don’t see a lot of activity here for the next year or more.”But that’s not to say the market will come to a screeching halt. “Everyone is waiting for the world to settle back on its axis and resume turning,” Mac Leod says. “Sellers are waiting for the word that the race has once again started and for whatever softness they are experiencing to abate. Buyers are waiting for the lenders to come back to the table so they can go back to buying.”Some deals are still possible, depending on the buyer. “Deals are still getting done with buyers that can acquire without the need for outside financing or with sellers and buyers who are committed to exploring a creative, win-win deal structure,” says Mac Leod.Looking Forward: The Keys to SuccessSo, maybe the regional magazine sector wasn’t as recession-proof as some might have thought. Still, the market has a unique opportunity to leverage advertisers in effective ways. “We have some important advantages over other publishing sectors,” says David Lipson, president of Metrocorp, which publishes city magazines including Philadelphia and Boston. “Most of our clients are locally owned businesses and we know the owners. We can sit down and discuss a variety of options that can help them through these difficult times.”This holds true for larger publishers who can attract national advertisers that have local outlets. “For national advertisers, we provide advertising and promotional support that’s closest to the sales transaction,” Lipson says. “In Philadelphia, we’ve done in-store promotions that have created as much as $100,000 in sales in a single store in a single night.”Depending on the market, regional publishers also can expand their footprint by launching pointed ancillary products, says Mac Leod. “The uniqueness of regional publishing is that it can leverage brands and advertisers more nimbly and quickly than a national publisher—with brand extensions, ancillary products and services—that go deeper into the same market and leverage resources most effectively,” she said.A good example of this, according to Pecht, is Wick Allison and his Texas-based D magazine group, which includes spin-offs D Home, D CEO, D Weddings and other specialty and custom magazines, as well as local newspaper group People Newspapers. “He [Allison] has managed to capture the upscale, local and national advertisers in D and then target those same advertisers with businesses in specific neighborhoods with the newspapers and other magazines,” Pecht says. “He can capture a larger slice of that available local dollar.”But regionals, like their national counterparts, should also re-examine the fundamentals of their business, says Greenspun’s Carr. “The client and customer are the most important people to us,” he says. “We have to embrace them and be thankful for working with them. The people who understand that they serve the market and the market does not serve them, will do well.”last_img read more

A cheaper HomePod could be coming next year.  Tyler Lizenby/CNET Apple’s HomePod was praised for its sound quality, but the pricey Siri-powered smart speaker has failed to keep up with offerings from Amazon, Google and Sonos, among others. Its initial $349 price didn’t do it any favors; neither did Siri’s limited functionality compared to Alexa or Google Assistant. Help may be on the way. After not updating the physical HomePod since its release in early 2018, Bloomberg reports that Apple is working on a cheaper HomePod for “as early as next year.”The report says that the cheaper speaker will “likely to have two tweeters (a type of loudspeaker), down from seven in the current HomePod.” It is unclear if this will be a so-called “HomePod Mini” to rival Amazon’s Echo Dot or Google’s Home Mini. How much lower the price will go to is also unknown. While it was originally launched at $349, earlier this year the company cut the price to $299. Today it can be found for even cheaper than that, with B&H currently selling it for $269.95. Apple did not immediately respond to a CNET request for comment. In addition to working on a new HomePod, Apple is reportedly prepping three new iPhones for September as well as updates to the MacBook Pro, iPad, Apple Watch and AirPods.  Preview • Hey Siri, beat Amazon, Google and Sonos: Apple HomePod hits Feb. 9 Comment Apple HomePod Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

Mayock complimented Johnson’s pass protection against the blitz-happy Rams.With former starting running back Chris Johnson currently on the IR and Andre Ellington working his way back from injury, the Cardinals may indeed lean on the rookie this Thursday against the Vikings and beyond.“Understand this: You have a Super Bowl roster,” Mayock said, addressing Johnson. “Just do your job and you could be wearing a Super Bowl ring.” – / 24 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Did a 2 min hit on AZ 3rd round pick David Johnson and his impact with Chris Johnson out …check it out !https://t.co/sBvyEuRXVu— Mike Mayock (@MikeMayock) December 10, 2015Cardinals rookie David Johnson got his first big dose of carries against the St. Louis Rams this past weekend, and he impressed more than those who follow Arizona on a regular basis.NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock broke down film of the Cards running back after his 22-carry, 99-yard performance on the ground in Arizona’s road win.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Boat company says Green Party allegations over party on Lara beach are

first_imgThe owners of a boat which the Green Party claimed unloaded tourists to have a party on the shore of the protected turtle beach at Lara in the Akamas said on Monday the allegation was completely false.The Green Party claimed on Sunday that the boat anchored on the shore of the beach at noon “blaring loud music and dropped the tourists off on the beach to have fun on the very sand where turtles lay their eggs”.Wave Dance Shipping said however they solely bring tourists to the area for “a nice swimming experience” during the months when this is permitted in the area, from April until May and October to November.“The sole purpose of our passengers going to the beach is to be able to enjoy the beauty of the area and to go for a swim. We can assure you that there never has and never will be a party on the beach. The majority of our passengers at this time of the year belong on average on the age group of 40s-60s. These passengers when getting off the boat are not allowed to take any drink or food with them,” the announcement said.Yianna Andreou, on behalf of the family-run business which has been operating since 2006, said the company encourages passenger not to leave anything disposable on the beach but to use the bins provided on the boat.“At the end of our stop the members of our crew are instructed to clean up any possible rubbish that they might spot on the beach that has been left behind by other visitors of the day that arrive there by other means,” she added.The company stresses the boat is inspected on a yearly basis by the appropriate authorities in order to secure the licence to operate and the authorities are aware of their trips to the area which comply fully with the law.“We are in agreement… in relation to the fact that night parties or quad bikes or other visitors who litter the area and we are, as a company, in complete disagreement in such irresponsible behaviour. We, in fact, support the environmental move in stopping such behaviour, but surely people should not be stopped from visiting this beautiful part of Cyprus within the allowed by law times, if they do so with full respect to the environment.”You May LikeFittors20 Best Short Hairdos For Women Over 60FittorsUndoCar NovelsThe Best Foods To Clear Artery PlaqueCar NovelsUndoWorldemandAli Macgraw Turns 79 & Looks Totally Different TodayWorldemandUndo Four dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoBrazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
