Guardiola’s birthday ruined, Arsenal held as Chelsea have the blues

first_imgGuardiola. PHOTO @mancityLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Pep Guardiola’s 49th birthday celebrations went flat as Fernandinho’s late own goal forced Manchester City to settle for a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, while Chelsea’s top-four bid was dented by a surprise 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Saturday.On a busy day of top-flight action, the pitchside VAR monitor was used in the Premier League for the first time at Norwich, with Tottenham forced to settle for a goalless stalemate at Watford and Arsenal held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United.It was the drama at the Etihad Stadium that took the spotlight as Fernandinho’s last-gasp blunder left Guardiola in no mood to party after City’s faint hopes of retaining the title suffered another hammer blow.The champions trail Liverpool by 13 points ahead of the runaway leaders’ clash with rivals Manchester United on Sunday.“It was a tight game. It’s difficult to analyse when they shoot from one corner and have no more chances,” Guardiola said.“We had many chances, unfortunately we could not win.”Cenk Tosun marked his first league start since his loan move from Everton with his maiden goal for the Eagles, the Turkish striker netting a close-range strike from Martin Kelly’s flick in the 39th minute.Sergio Aguero appeared to have turned the game on its head in the 82nd minute when the Argentine striker bagged his 250th goal in 360 games for the club.Aguero put City ahead in the 87th minute with a typically predatory header from Benjamin Mendy’s cross.But there was a sting in the tale for Guardiola as Fernandinho turned Zaha’s cross into his own net in the 90th minute to end second-placed City’s run of three successive league wins.– Chelsea downed late on –Chelsea would have cemented their grip on fourth place with a win on Tyneside, but they were unable to muster the cutting edge required to break down stubborn Newcastle and fell to Isaac Hayden’s header with just 20 seconds left in stoppage-time, losing 1-0.Chelsea’s first defeat in four league matches leaves them five points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.After four league games without a victory, this was a much-needed success for Newcastle, but a wasted opportunity for Chelsea to open up a bigger gap in the race to qualify for the Champions League.“We can’t work anymore in training on finishing. You need to have that killer instinct in front of goal. We need to score more goals from front-line areas if we are going to get to where we want to be,” Lampard said. “It’s quite clear from what I am saying now that we know where we need to strengthen but we shall see.”At Vicarage Road, Troy Deeney’s 70th-minute spot-kick was saved by Paulo Gazzaniga before Tottenham’s Erik Lamela was denied a last-gasp winner by Ignacio Pussetto’s goal-line clearance.With England captain Harry Kane sidelined after hamstring surgery, Tottenham have gone three league games without scoring.Jose Mourinho’s side are without a win in four league matches since December 26 and sit eight points behind Chelsea.Toothless Tottenham thought they had stolen the points in stoppage-time when Lamela flicked Serge Aurier’s cross towards goal, but Watford’s new signing Pussetto cleared off the line, with goal-line technology showing just 10.04mm of the ball had not gone over.Arsenal are 10 points adrift of the top four after the Blades continued their superb first season back in the Premier League.Gabriel Martinelli, 18, broke the deadlock in first-half stoppage-time at the Emirates Stadium with a clinical finish from Bukayo Saka’s cross.But Chris Wilder’s side snatched an 83rd-minute equaliser when John Fleck lashed home after Arsenal failed to clear.Bottom of the table Norwich’s vital 1-0 win over fellow strugglers Bournemouth saw the pitchside monitor finally used to decide a red card call.Norwich took the lead when Bournemouth defender Steve Cook was sent off after flinging himself across the goal to block Teemu Pukki’s shot with his hand.Pukki fired home the resulting penalty in the 33rd minute, but the Canaries had to survive a tense finish after Ben Godfrey was sent off in the 76th minute.Godfrey’s foul on Callum Wilson was ruled a red card by referee Paul Tierney after he checked with the monitor, a move that followed advice to officials from Premier League chiefs this week to use the screen more often.Wolves climbed to sixth after a 3-2 win at Southampton, Everton drew 1-1 at West Ham and Brighton shared a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Rory climbs the leaderboard as Casey pushes on

first_img His plan tomorrow is simple: “I shall be conservative and when I get opportunities I’ll try to take them.”  His closest challenger is Finland’s Jesse Saareks on two-under, while Ireland’s Joseph Byrne and Jordan’s Shergo Kurdi are one-under.  9 Aug 2017 Rory climbs the leaderboard as Casey pushes on South Africa’s Casey Jarvis scored two-under par 70 today to extend his lead in the Reid Trophy to four shots, with a round left to play.  He is six-under for the 36 holes played so far in the English U14 boys’ open championship at Manchester Golf Club. Click here for full scores  His response was to birdie the next two holes and to add another birdie on the 16th. “I knew I was hitting the ball really good, I knew I could come back and fight back,” said Jarvis.  As he made headway today his main rivals slipped back a little, but England’s Rory McDonald-O’Brien, pictured top, (Lilleshall Hall, Shropshire) also made ground. His 70 moved him 14 places up the leaderboard and into a share of fifth place on level par.  McDonald-O’Brien played in the Reid Trophy last year but missed the cut. This year, he has set his sights on a top ten finish, buoyed by a good result in the Scottish U16s, where he was 12th and played below his handicap in all four rounds.  The gusting winds made club selection difficult, but the 13-year-old got it right with a series of extremely accurate shots for birdies. On the seventh his sand wedge approach finished 1ft away; he repeated the feat on the ninth with a seven iron; on the 14th, his wedge shot from 60 yards lipped out and left him a 2ft putt; on the 16th he chipped in.  He’s the leading English player and, while this round isn’t his lowest, it is, he said: “Right up there with my best because of the conditions.”  Casey Jarvis, pictured left, has similar aims: “I am going to try and hit as many greens as possible and make a few putts – and hopefully I can do it.” Images copyright Leaderboard Photography After today’s second round the leading 70 players qualified for tomorrow’s final round with the cut falling on 11-over par.   The 14-year-old showed his powers of resilience today. He was playing very steadily and was two under after 12 holes, when he took a triple bogey seven on the 13th after pushing his second into the long grass.  Tags: Reid Trophylast_img read more

Darwin Myths Debunked – By Darwinist

first_imgAn aura of legend has enveloped the memory of Charles Darwin.  To many, the white-bearded father of evolutionary theory was like a saint on a white horse, rescuing science from an age of superstition.  The true history is much more interesting.    Darwin Day is coming next February 12.  It marks Darwin’s 200th birthday and also the 150th anniversary of the publication of his Origin of Species.  The Darwin Exhibition, a multi-million-dollar display produced by the American Museum of Natural History (09/22/2005), is making the rounds of major museums, culminating in the 2009 Darwin Bicentennial year.    Hiram Caton (Griffith University, Australia) felt compelled to pen “Getting Our History Right” when he saw the “Exhibition’s devotion to the legend at the expense of fact.” Here are six mythbusting theses Caton defended in his article:Publication of the Origin was not a sudden (“revolutionary”) interruption of Victorian society’s confident belief in the traditional theological world-view.The Origin did not “revolutionize” the biological sciences by removing the creationist premise or introducing new principles.The Origin did not revolutionize Victorian public opinion.  The public considered Darwin and Spencer to be teaching the same lesson, known today as “Social Darwinism”, which, though fashionable, never achieved dominance.Many biologists expressed significant disagreements with Darwin’s principles.Darwin made little or no contribution to the renovation of theology.  His public statements on Providence were inconsistent and the liberal reform of theology was well advanced by 1850.The so-called “Darwinian revolution” was, at the public opinion level, the fashion of laissez-faire economic beliefs backed by Darwin and Spencer’s inclusion of the living world in the economic paradigm.Where did Hiram Caton print this Darwin-deflating piece?  Not in a creationist magazine, but in Evolutionary Psychology.1  (See 06/06/2008.)  He is no creationist; he just worries that distorting publicity can backfire.  “As a cadre who bear a public trust to get the facts right,” he ended, “we are obliged to correct misrepresentations directed to schools at a time when evolution is under challenge.  Besides, science history that includes the quirks, baseless claims, cheating, and battles is more engaging than the sanitized history meant to instill unquestioning acceptance.”1.  Hiram Caton, “Getting Our History Right: Six Errors about Darwin and His Influence,” Evolutionary Psychology, www.epjournal.net – 2007. 5(1): 52-69.What, exactly, are we supposed to be celebrating next year?  Ineptitude?  The gullibility of the public?  The power of fashionable ideas to distort history?  The inability of reasonable scientists with their significant disagreements to stop bad ideas at their onset?  Darwin Day can still be a worthy holiday if we make these the lessons.  We agree with Caton; first, we have to get the facts right.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Natural gas and energy prices expected to stay low

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It is likely that prices of natural gas — now at their lowest in two decades — will be even lower during the home heating season next winter, Purdue University energy economist Wally Tyner says.In another good sign for low energy costs for consumers, Tyner also expects gasoline prices to stay in the range of $2 to $2.50 a gallon for much of 2016.Consumers already are seeing lower heating bills this winter even before the recent price drop. Tyner said that while the price of natural gas in December is the lowest it has been since 1994, consumers won’t see the full benefit of that in their gas bills this winter. That is because most of the natural gas that will be delivered this winter has already been contracted.“However, it likely means that home heating costs will fall more next winter,” he said.Tyner lists several “supply-and-demand drivers” that are keeping the price of natural gas so low:• Natural gas is produced from both conventional and shale oil and gas formations, so the “fracking” boom has led to large supply increases of natural gas.• The large supply increase has been faster than the rate of demand increase, so price has come down. Also, there is little international trade in natural gas, so the export market is quite limited.• While the low price has discouraged additional drilling for natural gas, oil and gas drilling efficiency has increased tremendously the past 2 to 3 years.• Normally, natural gas is put in storage in summer months, and the stored gas is used over the winter months. This year, however, so far the winter has been abnormally warm. Natural gas storage facilities are approaching full capacity, and limited additional storage is putting tremendous downward pressure on prices.Tyner noted that natural gas is used not only by many consumers for home heating but also by industry for process heat and to generate electricity.“Changes in natural gas prices, therefore, ripple widely through the economy,” he said.For gasoline, Tyner explained that price prospects depend mainly on what happens to the price of crude oil. Crude oil briefly was about $32 per barrel in December 2008 and January 2009. Today, it is about $35. He said forecasts for crude prices for 2016 range from falling to about $20 to increasing to $60 or more.“My sense is that we are near the bottom for crude oil and that it will remain relatively low for much of 2016,” he said.last_img read more

BurstNET Links Blogetery to Al-Qaeda

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market BurstNET, the host for the blog platform Blogetery, released a statement today. Blogetery’s 70,000 blogs were shut down with little notice last week, as we reported yesterday. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… “BurstNET received a notice of a critical nature from law enforcement officials, and was asked to provide information regarding ownership of the server hosting Blogetry.com. It was revealed that a link to terrorist material, including bomb-making instructions and an al-Qaeda ‘hit list,’ had been posted to the site.”This was interpreted as a terms-of-service violation against Blogetery as a whole, said the company. “BurstNET determined that the posted material, in addition to potentially inciting dangerous activities, specifically violated the BurstNET Acceptable Use Policy. This policy strictly prohibits the posting of ‘terrorist propaganda, racist material, or bomb/weapon instructions.’ Due to this violation and the fact that the site had a history of previous abuse, BurstNET elected to immediately disable the system.”Presumably the “previous abuse” was of copyright violations, which the owner said was dealt with in a timely fashion. The fairness of shutting down the 69,999 blogs that were innocent for the one that may prove guilty, is up for debate. We have questions in to the company and will post any response if we receive one. Thanks to Jeremy for the tip.

Five Years Of Android: The Devices That Defined Google’s Mobile OS

first_imgdan rowinski The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Tags:#Android#Google#smartphones#tablets Released: February 24, 2011.Hardware: 10.1-inch screen (800×1280), 6000 mAh battery (non-removable), 32 GB internal storage, 1 GB RAM, 5 MP back camera, 2 MP front camera.Firmware: Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)Google took a break from the Nexus line with Android 3.2 Honeycomb and went with Motorola for the flagship device of the operating system. Honeycomb and the Xoom turned out to be a complete albatross in the Android ecosystem, never gaining traction with consumers or developers. In fact, Honeycomb was so lampooned for being “half-finished” that Google never even released the normally open source Android kernel code and very few devices were ever made that used the operating system. Honeycomb was supposed to be Google’s answer to the Android tablet conundrum. To this point, the only Android tablets that had been released ran some version of Froyo or Gingerbread, Android versions that were suboptimal for large screen devices. Honeycomb ultimately served as the stepping stone between Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, which married the smartphone and tablet capabilities of Android and made it much easier for developers and manufacturers to create applications for a variety of screen sizes. Galaxy Nexus Released: November 17, 2011.Hardware: 4.65-inch screen (720×1280), 1750 mAh battery (removable), 16/32 GB internal storage (no external memory), 1 GB RAM, 5 MP back camera, 1.3 MP front camera.Firmware: Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)In many ways, Android phones made a giant leap at the end of 2011. Screens started to get bigger (eventually much bigger) and Android got a lot smarter, easy to use and out of its own way. This was epitomized with the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich. Android can almost be categorized into two phases: Android 2.3 Gingerbread and everything that came before and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and everything that came after. Starting with the Galaxy Nexus, Android smartphones have run smoother, been more secure, had bigger screens and hardware specifications that are all almost nearly double what came before.Nexus 7 Released: November 13, 2012.Hardware: 4.7-inch screen (768×1280), 2100 mAh battery (non-removable), 8/16 GB internal memory, 2 GB RAM, 8 MP back camera, 1.3 MP front camera. Firmware: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)The latest Android firmware is version 4.2, the second instance of Jelly Bean (much in the same way that Android 2.0/2.1 were both Eclair). The Nexus 4 from LG was released at the end of 2012 with two other devices — the Nexus 10 from Samsung (below) and the upgraded Nexus 7. As yet, adoption of Android 4.2 has been minimal as it is an iterative update to what already existed in Android 4.1, with some minor feature upgrades. While many people consider the Nexus 4 to be a superb instance of an Android smartphone, it was criticized for its lack of 4G LTE, of which most new smartphones have included by default. The phone was made available through Google Play store (along with it tablet siblings) and on T-Mobile.Nexus 10 What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Released: October 17, 2009Hardware: 3.7-inch screen (480×854), 1400 mAh battery (removable), slide-out keyboard, 512 MB internal storage (expandable external storage), 256 MB RAM, 5 MP back camera.Firmware: Android 2.0 (Eclair)Boom goes the dynamite. The Motorola Droid was the first true Android smartphone to be popular with the masses. It was released to Verizon with heavy marketing targeted at what the Droid could do that an iPhone could not, like multi-tasking. The “Droid Does” slogan became a popular part of the geek lexicon and was Motorola’s high water mark in the smartphone wars. The Droid shipped with the original Android 2.0 “Eclair” version but was quickly updated to a much more stable version in Android 2.1.Nexus One Released: October 22, 2008Hardware: 3.2-inch screen (320×480), 1150 mAh battery (removable), slide-out physical keyboard, 256 MB internal storage (expandable external storage), 192 RAM, 3.2 megapixel back camera.Firmware: Android 1.0The G1 (also known as the HTC Dream) was the first of Google’s flagship smartphones. At the time it was a bit of a curiosity, mostly interesting for how it introduced Google properties (like Maps, Street View, Calendar and Search) to the smartphone market. The G1 was limited to T-Mobile in the United States.Motorola Droid Released: July 13, 2012.Hardware: 7-inch screen (800×1280), 4325 mAh battery (non-removable), 8/16/32 GB internal memory (no external memory), 1 GB RAM, 1.2 MP front camera.Firmware: Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)The first Nexus tablet was announced at Google I/O in June 2012 and shipped a couple weeks later. The Nexus 7 cemented the market for lower priced tablets (next to the Kindle Fire at $199) with smaller screens in the 7-inch variety. From a hardware point of view, the Nexus 7 was not the most sophisticated tablet ever to be released, but it showed that Android has the ability to seamlessly run on tablet-sized screens while also highlighting the capabilities of Jelly Bean as a tablet operating system. Google refreshed the Nexus 7 later in the year to give it cellular connectivity. Nexus 4 Released: January 5, 2009Hardware: 3.7-inch screen (480×800), 1400 mAh battery (removable), 512 MB internal storage (expandable), 512 MB RAM, 5 MP back camera.Firmware: Android 2.1 (Eclair)The Nexus One was the first Android device commissioned directly from Google to serve as the flagship of the operating system. The One was built by HTC (an altered with HTC’s “Sense” skin for its Incredible smartphone) and immediately became the sexiest Android smartphone on the market. The Nexus series has since become known as the “guide” device for new versions of the operating system. The Nexus One also marked an experiment by Google to bypass the carriers and sell directly to consumers through its website. The One was also one of the first Android smartphone to ship with Near Field Communication (NFC) functionality. This experiment did not take among consumers and most subsequent Nexus devices were offered through Google alongside subsidized versions from the likes of AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint. Google did not release a Nexus device for Android 2.2, with updated firmware for the Nexus One serving as the de facto flagship for Froyo.Nexus S Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Released: December 16, 2010.Hardware: 4-inch screen (480×800), 1500 mAh battery (removable), 16 GB internal storage, 512 MB RAM, 5 MP back camera, VGA front camera.Firmware: Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)Samsung really started its rise to the top of the Android pyramid in 2010 with the release of its wide-ranging Galaxy S smartphones. Google tapped the Korean manufacturer for the next two Nexus devices, starting with the Nexus S. The device was the flagship for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is still the most-used version of the operating system years after its release.Motorola Xoom Nearly five years ago, a smartphone came out that few thought much of. Little did people know that the device would be a harbinger for the next half-decade of mobile innovation, pushing boundaries of technology and launching a fundamental shift in how people interact with computers.That phone was the HTC G1, the original “Google Phone.” It was a clunky, bug-ridden touchscreen device with a slide-out physical keyboard. The G1 did not sell particularly well. The buzz at the time was over Apple’s still relatively young iPhone and varying BlackBerry devices, like the original Bold 9000.Let’s not say that the G1 was the beginning of the Mobile Revolution. There are neither beginnings nor endings in the turning of the wheel of technology. But it was a beginning.The beginning of the Android Era.It is amazing to look back at the last five years of Android and see just how far the devices that run Google’s mobile operating system have come. From the G1 to the Nexus 10, the hardware, software and everything in between has gone from buggy, crash-prone phones to finely tuned devices that dominate mobile computing. Google and its manufacturing partners have done well in a half decade of innovation. What will the next five years bring?Google is expected to announce a new version of its Android mobile operating system at its I/O developers conference, which runs Wednesday through Friday this week. Google refreshed its flagship Nexus line in November, and new Android chief Sundar Pichai recently downplayed expectations for major new products at I/O, a change from last year, which saw major launches like the Nexus 7 tablet.Instead, in a sign of Android’s maturation, Google will likely put the focus on devices from its hardware partners, like Samsung and HTC—a sign of Android’s increasing maturity as a platform. Let’s take a look back at the devices that brought Android to this pivotal point in its history.HTC G1 Related Posts Released: November 13, 2012.Hardware: 10.05-inch screen (1600×2560), 9000 mAh battery (non-removable), 16/32 GB memory, 2 GB RAM, 5 MP back camera, 1.9 MP front camera.Firmware: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)Samsung came back to produce the first branded large-screen (8-inches or up) Nexus tablet with the Nexus 10. The tablet was the first large screen to roll out with a flagship Android update since Motorola released the Xoom tablet with the Honeycomb release in February 2011. What will this week bring at Google I/O 2013? Will we finally see Android 5.0? Or is there another update to Jelly Bean (Android 4.3)? We will be everywhere at I/O next week bringing you news of Google’s latest gadgets, apps and developer news.

Cowboys Offer Scholarship to Kelby Wickline, Son of former OSU Coach

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Former Oklahoma State offensive line coach Joe Wickline was regarded as one of the best coaches at the position during his tenure at OSU, so it should come as no surprise that his son, Kelby, has developed into a Div. I prospect at the position.According to a tweet that was shared by Kelby himself, OSU has extended a scholarship offer to Kelby this week. Kelby began his career at UTSA in 2015, and is now a 2017 prospect playing for Jones County Junior College.He has offers reported on the 247sports recruiting website from Missouri, Iowa State, Cal, Kansas, Kentucky, SMU, Southern Miss, TCU, UAB, Western Kentucky, and West Virginia.Wickline originally joined the WVU program earlier in May of this year, before heading to junior college. A 6-foot-5, 275-pound prospect, Kelby is a highly sought after offensive lineman and with OSU’s connections, should be an interesting recruitment to follow.His father, Joe Wickline, who is now the offensive coordinator for West Virginia, coached the offensive line at Oklahoma State under Mike Gundy. So the timing for the offer, with the Mountaineers travelling to Stillwater this weekend, is pretty interesting as well.last_img read more

Russia India eying prospects for joint shipbuilding venture Putin

first_imgVladivostok: Russia and India are looking into the possibility of launching a joint ship building venture, Russian President Vladimir Putin said here on Thursday. “Yesterday, we spoke with the Prime Minister [of India]. We are exploring the chances of starting up a joint venture. Maybe, some vessels will be built by us,” Putin said a day after he held wide-ranging summit talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to enhance bilateral ties here in the Far Eastern port city. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalPutin noted that international cooperation [in shipbuilding] was flourishing globally. “They (ships) will be partially built by us and partially fine-tuned by India’s shipyards,” the Russian president said during the Eastern Economic Forum where prime minister Modi was the chief guest. Putin recalled that on Wednesday, he and Prime Minister Modi visited the Zvezda shipyard here and met senior officials of the facility. Putin noted that Russian oil giant Rosneft owns one of India’s major oil refineries. “It [Rosneft] has recently purchased a controlling stake, and controls one of India’s major ports. He was referring to Rosneft’s purchase in 2017 of Essar Oil, which operates in Vadinar oil refinery in Gujarat and some 5,500 petrol pumps, and a port for $12.9 billion.last_img read more
