Graeme Souness slams Anthony Taylor

first_imgPundit Graeme Souness has blasted referee Anthony Taylor for not sending off Watford’s Etienne Capoue for a challenge on Wilfried Zaha.Etienne Capoue was shown only a yellow card for a dangerous tackle on Wilfried Zaha, however, Souness disagreed with the referee’s decision and also hit out at the Watford player.“He (Capoue) set out to nail Zaha,” Souness told Sky Sports.“Just look where the referee is. What is he, three, four yards away from it? For the life of me, how does the referee not see that as a red card?“It tells me one of two things: he’s completely bottled it, or he doesn’t understand football.Joel Ward, Crystal PalaceHow Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.“He (Capoue) is trying to hurt him badly. When you damage your Achilles tendon badly, which there was a real danger of happening there, you’re never the same player again.“The referee, for me… I find it so frustrating. You can’t just say he got it wrong. It’s not as if he has got an obscured view. It’s not as if it could be or might be a red card.“That is 100 per cent a red card. There’s leaving a bit on someone, and there’s real malice in that, trying to injure him for a long, long time.”Fellow pundits Jamie Redknapp and Alan Smith both agreed with Souness that Capoue should have been sent off for that challenge.last_img read more

Borough Assembly Request BOF Rescind Decision To Move 2020 UCI Meeting

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享After a surprise vote by the Board of Fisheries to relocate the Upper Cook Inlet 2020 regulatory meeting from the Kenai Peninsula back to Anchorage local officials are requesting that decision be reconsidered. Dunne: “As many folks have heard the Alaska Board of Fish was scheduled to be held on the Kenai Peninsula in 2020, after many years of not being held here, but due to procedural acts the board voted to move that meeting to Anchorage. We are asking that be reconsidered and moved back to the Kenai Peninsula for 2020.” Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce: “We sent up, that morning, a letter written on behalf of the borough in support of holding the meeting here on the Peninsula. A second letter followed as well, so the borough did provided input into process. We are waiting for hopefully a good outcome, I don’t think we are finished with it just yet.” Board of Fish chair Reed Morisky said there was interest in revisiting the decision, because Anchorage is central, and is home to many fishery user groups and has a greater capacity to house and hold the meeting attendees. Assemblymember Willy Dunne spoke on a resolution, at the Kenai Peninsula Borough meeting on Tuesday, requesting the meeting be moved back to the Kenai Peninsula. The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly has joined the cities of Kenai and Soldotna, as well as Kenai Peninsula legislative delegation in submitting a request to the board to rescind that decision and allow for more public input. In March 2018, the board voted to hold the UCI area meeting on the Kenai Peninsula. The vote taken in January was a reversal of that decision.last_img read more

Google CEO on Paid Content The Reality is the Vast Majority of

first_imgEric Schmidt, Google’s CEO, keynoted the Newspaper Association ofAmerica event in San Diego this week, just as newspaper executives weredragging out and dusting off the old aggregator backlash, whining about “stolen” content.But Schmidt, during a Q+A session after his address,made some insightful remarks about online audience behavior with paidcontent, search and news. His address was obviously targeted at newspapers and news-orientedcontent, but his takeaways can easily be applied to any online contentpublisher. We’re all struggling with online business models and howvisitors want to consume content.Some key excerpts via Poynter, which has the full Q&A session transcript. On online content models: “I think from yourperspective you should assume that there’s a category of informationyou all produce that you’ll want to distribute freely. There’s acategory you’ll want to have on a per click basis. And there’s somethat you’ll want subscription for. The reality in this model is thevast majority of people will only want the free model, so you’ll beforced, whether we like it or not, to have a significant advertisingcomponent as well as a micropayment and a traditional payment system.”On how newspapers were good at repurposing content, but missed the engagement boat:”Theact after [repurposing content online] is a much harder question. It’show do you keep engagement? How do you avoid being just mediated with aset of stories that are aggregated with your brand on them, which iswhat’s happened to some newspapers? So in the case you were describing, if I were involved in thedigital part of a newspaper, trying to understand what to do, I wouldfirst and foremost try to understand what my reader wants.”On intellectual property rights:”I disagree with yourpremise that they will continue to erode. What I do believe is that allthese partially-thought-through legal systems are being challenged bythe ubiquity of the Internet. Just as free speech is being affected bythe fact that people are free to speak whatever they think even if wereally don’t want to hear them. It’s the same problem.”On online measurement:”We look at clicks and we alsolook at how long people stay on a page. And we can then infer interest.Your question is so good because it shows you how early we are in theindustry. We don’t have combined, accurate, audited ways of measuringaudiences, counting advertisers, all of which has to be developed as atechnology behind the businesses that all of us are going to build. It took many, many years for the same business structures to bedesigned for the audit circulation bureaus for magazines. The samething is going to occur and it will occur because it needs to. For ourpurposes, we use our internal information which is accurate, but as Iagree, there is not a uniform standard.”last_img read more

Publishers Favorite Social Media Tracking Tools

first_imgSocial media audiences have effectively become another universe of prospects to tap, which means measurement and tracking is essential to yielding from these visitors both direct and indirect revenue. While Facebook and Twitter offer their own analytics tools, a host of third-party offerings exist to pick up where they leave off. Here, digital audience marketers chime in on the ones they’re using now, and why.Tool: Adobe SitecatalystWhat It Does: Segments traffic to determine “high-value” Web visitors and offers real-time analytics.The Breakdown: “We get most of our Facebook data by marrying up Facebook Insights data with our Web analytics from Adobe Sitecatalyst. We use Sitecatalyst to analyze all of the traffic coming back to our sites and what is getting them there. We have integrated some of our other social vendors like Gigya into Sitecatalyst so that we can look at our shares, likes, tweets, pins, social logins, comments, etc., and the impact of those for our traffic.” –Erin Hoskins, Senior Marketing Director, New Media, MeredithTool: CuralateWhat It Does: Monitors and measures traffic from “visual-based platforms”—namely (for now, at least) Pinterest.The Breakdown: “Pinterest doesn’t have an open API yet, so data has been pretty limited. Curalate allows us to see how the content we pin to our boards is performing, as well as the content people are organically pinning from our sites, and more importantly how viral those actions are, since it’s reported that 80 percent of Pinterest activity comes from repins.” –Erin Hoskins, Senior Marketing Director, New Media, Meredith Tool: Radian6 (Salesforce)What It Does: Gathers, tracks, analyzes and reports on what people are saying about a brand, on blogs and through comments and posts on social media sites. The Breakdown: “Capturing conversation outside brand-owned channels is not a perfect science, but at the moment, Radian6 is leading the pack. It’s decent at capturing blog and Twitter-based content but not as accurate at capturing content that is behind a ‘sign-in’ gate, most notably Facebook. This means there is always a margin of error in what the tool is measuring. For this reason, we prefer to pull specific data on each platform from each platform and create our own cumulative reports.” –Raman Kia, Executive Director, Digital Strategy, Condé Nast Media Group.Tool: SysomosWhat it does: Like Radian6, Sysomos is designed to help brands “listen” to what people are saying about them online, particularly through social media. The Breakdown: “This is a new vendor for us. It will allow us to track conversations about our brands and campaigns, spot trends in core content areas and identify key influencers that are connected to our brands.” –Erin Hoskins, Senior Marketing Director, New Media, MeredithTool: Open Site Explorer (SEOmoz)What It Does: Offers data on most-linked-to content and most-linked-from sites, and allows Web publishers to compare their own data against the competition. The Breakdown: “We prefer to take the extra step when measuring ‘influence’ and look at the value of referral links in terms of page authority. Open Site Explorer is a great tool for this.” –Raman Kia, Executive Director, Digital Strategy, Condé Nast Media Group.Tool: Chartbeat Publishing (formerly Newsbeat)What It Does: Shows the most popular content on a site at a given time, how readers move around the site, the level of engagement for each story and which stories people read all the way through versus abandoned after one paragraph.The Breakdown: “The Chartbeat interface is very intuitive and visual, so you can get a lot of information in one place. There is something about the color and tone that’s very easy to look at for hours. It’s also simple to customize.” –Leslie Ellwood, Executive Director, Audience Development, American Media Inc.Tool: Bitly What It Does: Allows users to share and bookmark links, powers shortened URLs used especially on Twitter and offers an enterprise analytics platform.The Breakdown: “I like Bitly to measure external traffic, so looking at our brands versus the competition.” –Leslie Ellwood, Executive Director, Audience Development, American Media Inc.last_img read more

first_imgNagababu familyTwitterActor Nagababu aka Nagendra Babu’s wife Padmaja has confirmed the news that Allu Arjun, Varun Tej and Niharika Konidela will campaign for Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party in the 2019 general elections.Pawan Kalyan has been single-handedly working hard to get majority of votes for the MLA and MP candidates of Jana Sena Party in the 2019 general elections. But he is not able to give enough time for everyone. This has raised the question why the power star is not able to bring in some star campaigners from the film industry. Many are also asking why mega family has ignored his party.Finally, here is good news for the supporters of Jana Sena party. In an interview, Nagababu’s wife Padmaja revealed that Allu Arjun, Varun Tej and Niharika are going to participate in the campaign. In an interview, she said, “Many people are impressed with the JSP manifesto. Some are confident of Pawan Kalyan, while a few doubt whether he will fulfill the promises made in manifesto.”Talking about Pawan Kalyan entering politics, Padmaja said, “Initially, I was not happy with Kalyan’s decision. I felt he was leading a happy life in the film industry. Why is risking himself, by getting into politics? I don’t like politics because, people will criticize you, even if you work hard for them.”Nagababu’s wife added, “After seeing his public speeches, I felt Kalyan has taken a right decision. He has come to do something good for the people and there is no bad intention in him joining politics. Whatever he promises to the people, he will definitely fulfill it.” Pawan Kalyan inducts his brother Nagababu in to Jana Sena partyTwitterNagababu, who also opposed Pawan Kalyan launching Jana Sena, recently joined the party and is contesting Lok Sabha elections from Narasapuram constituency. Talking about her husband, Padmaja said, “He is a very good-natured person and there is no negative stuff connected with his name. He is positive about the people that they would make him victorious in this elections.” Varun Tej with Allu ArjunTwitterAlong with her mother, actress Niharika Konidela is campaigning for her father Nagababu. When asked other members of the mage family, Padmaja said, “Varun will take part in the campaign after returning from the US.

Rohingya villagers blockaded amid fresh tensions in Myanmars Rakhine Residents

first_imgHundreds of Rohingya Muslims have been blockaded inside their area by their Buddhist neighbours in a western Myanmar village, residents say, as religious tensions in troubled Rakhine state spread to a more ethnically mixed part of the region.Monitors and aid workers worry that violence that has until now been largely confined to the Rohingya-majority northern part of Rakhine, bordering Bangladesh, could erupt in an area where the two communities live side-by-side in much larger numbers.Residents, aid workers and monitors told Reuters that Muslims in the village of Zay Di Pyin had been blocked from going to work or fetching food and water for the last three weeks, although a small number had been allowed through the blockade to buy provisions on Tuesday.Police said Rakhine Buddhist villagers were restricting the amount of food the Rohingya could buy, but denied their movement around the village and access to work had been blocked.“I think they are just afraid and aren’t going out,” said Myanmar police headquarters spokesman Colonel Myo Thu Soe.The government said it was working to improve security in the area.The stand-off has raised fears of a repeat of the communal violence that broke out in the Rakhine state capital Sittwe in 2012, leading to the killing of nearly 200 people and displacement of some 140,000 – most of them Rohingya.“The concern in Zay Di Pyin is that this could escalate into violence between the two communities,” said Chris Lewa of Arakan Project, a Rohingya monitoring group.Rakhine has long been riven between ethnic Rahkine Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims. Around 1.1 million Rohingya live in the state, but are denied citizenship and face severe travel restrictions, with many Buddhists across Myanmar regarding them as illegal immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.More than 87,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since Rohingya insurgents killed nine police in northwest Rakhine in October. That prompted a military crackdown beset by allegations of rape, killings and arson by the security forces.PENNED INIn Zay Di Pyin, a large, mixed village of some 5,000 people with a mosque and a Buddhist monastery, Rakhine residents have penned about 700 Rohingya inside their neighbourhood by blocking entry points with a fence since late July, preventing access to a market and a pond used as a source of drinking water, according to two Muslim residents and monitors.Local people said tensions had spiked in late July, when a Rakhine Buddhist man from a nearby village went missing. Three Rohingya residents were found killed in the area in the same period.“They accused us of killing the missing Rakhine person and blocked us from going out because of that,” a Rohingya man told Reuters by telephone, speaking on condition of anonymity.A second Rohingya man inside the blockaded area told Reuters the residents were being stopped from going to work at the local river jetty, where many carry loads for a living. They were also prevented from praying at the village mosque, which is outside the blocked area, he said.Rakhine villagers, some armed with swords and sticks, had set up makeshift checkpoints at six points around the Rohingya quarter, the men told Reuters. Both of them said there has been no major violent incidents so far.Police spokesman Colonel Myo Thu Soe said authorities had received a complaint about the blockade last week and had brokered a meeting on Friday, at which it was agreed 15 Rohingya residents would be allowed to leave their neighbourhood to fetch food twice a week.Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s spokesman Zaw Htay said the issue was resolved on Friday and that the “villagers can go out”, adding that the government was planning to provide security for them. He did not give more details.One of the Rohingya men confirmed that 15 people had been allowed to go out to buy food for the community on Tuesday, but said they were still not permitted to move around freely.“They said that 15 people will be able to leave twice a week – but we can’t work so I don’t know how we’ll be able to afford food,” said the man.WILL THE FOOD LAST?Zay Di Pyin is located in the ethnically mixed Rathedaung district, some 65 km (40 miles) north of Sittwe.In another incident that has added to tensions in the area, residents in the neighbouring village of Auk Nan Yar, where the Rohingya are the majority, said they were being prevented from leaving their village by security forces.It follows a confrontation in early August between hundreds of Muslims and security forces who were trying to arrest six Rohingya men accused of raising money for militants. In a separate incident on that day seven Buddhists were killed in a different part of northern Rakhine.In the week following the incidents, Suu Kyi convened a high-level security meeting in the capital Naypyitaw and declared a curfew in the area, while the army sent some 500 soldiers to reinforce around Aug. 10.Police said the military was conducting a “clearance operation” in the nearby Mayu mountain range, where the government suspects Rohingya insurgents have been training.“The nearby villagers were warned to be careful when they go out to the mountains in order to avoid getting arrested by mistake,” said spokesman Myo Thu Soe.Two villagers from Auk Nan Yar told Reuters that they too were now unable to get to a market to buy food or to work.“Now we’re sharing the food we have left with each other in the village,” said one of the villagers. “We don’t know how long the food will last.”last_img read more

Harvey Damage At San Jacinto Waste Pits Illustrates Bigger Problems For EPA

first_imgHPM ArchiveA sign near the San Jacinto Waste Pits Superfund Site. X 00:00 /02:43 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listencenter_img Share The Environmental Protection Agency says it has found damage to the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Superfund site following Tropical Storm Harvey.The agency is ordering the parties responsible for the site to take immediate action to “address damage to the protective cap and high-levels of underlying waste material found at one of the samples on site.”The site, which holds waste from a former paper mill decades ago, sits just off I-10 in eastern Harris County near Channelview. The site has been known to include the highly toxic chemical pollutant dioxin. The EPA faced criticism in the days following Harvey for not immediately inspecting Superfund sites on the ground after the storm hit.What does the EPA’s finding mean for surrounding residents, and what are the potential long-term implications? Houston Matters talks with Victor Flatt, environmental law professor at the University of Houston Law Center.What The Finding Means: Flatt says the finding means those responsible for the Superfund site are not in compliance with their post-closure order for site. He says, anytime remediation is done at a hazardous site, the EPA will issue an order saying what’s supposed to happen there over time. The responsibility falls back on those private companies who are responsible for such sites to follow the cleanup procedures in the order.Symptomatic Of Bigger IssuesFlatt says issues like this have been concerning him, and that, in the last 15-20 years, the EPA has been less aggressive with its cleanup plans. This illustrates a bigger problem with how the EPA handles sites like this, he says.What Are The Implications?Flatt says damage at the site could lead to exposure and could require more expensive procedures to deal with that exposure. If containment is breached, that means potentially toxic substances are getting into the groundwater and soil. Anyone who comes into contact with that is going to be exposed to those chemicals. Other sites the EPA says it has stopped monitoring could have leaks as well. Some private organizations have attempted to do that testing. There are numerous roadblocks to determine what else might have happened at other sites in relation to Harvey.last_img read more

Watch the Trailer for Hulus Upcoming VR Comedy Door No 1 EXCLUSIVE

first_imgHulu publicly unveiled the trailer and a behind-the-scenes video for its new virtual reality (VR) comedy “Door No. 1” Friday. The comedy, which was written and directed by Nora Kirkpatrick of “The Office” fame and produced by AOL’s RYOT exclusively for Hulu, is set to debut on the service on May 24.Door No. 1 is a kind of live-action multiple choice comedy adventure about a ten-year high school reunion. The show puts the viewer into the middle of the action by making her or him a protagonist of the show: Alex, one of the former students attending the reunion.Alex doesn’t talk throughout the show, but can decide to take multiple paths through the story, and make many bad decisions along the way — it’s a high school reunion, after all.The cast for Door No. 1 included Steve Little (“Eastbound and Down”), Ravi Patel (“Wrecked,” “Meet The Patels”), Kyle Bornheimer (“Casual”), Missi Pyle (“Another Period”), Mircea Monroe (“Episodes”), Sarah Baker (“Big Little Lies”), Johnny Pemberton (“Superstore”), John Gemberling (“Broad City”), Lucas Neff (“Raising Hope”), Sheaun McKinney (“Vice Principals”) and Barry Rothbart (“The Wolf of Wall Street”). And Snoop Dogg is appearing in a special guest cameo. Most of the actors had never filmed VR before, and they also never had to interact with a character that isn’t really there, directly talking into a VR camera and pretending that someone was reacting to their lines. The cast and crew shared some of their experiences on set in a behind-the-scenes video:“Door No. 1” will be available via Hulu’s VR apps on Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, Sony PlayStation VR, Google Daydream and Oculus Rift.

Study finds nicotinefree ecigs can damage blood vessels

first_img Privacy policy AllMedX New research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has shown nicotine-free e-cigarette vapor can have an immediate harmful effect on the body’s vascular function. The study was published as the CDC begins investigating an increasing number of hospitalizations across the country being linked to e-cigarette use.The new study set out to investigate the immediate effects of vaping on systemic vascular function. The e-cigarette liquid used in the study was nicotine-free, and the experiments included 31 healthy adults who were all non-smokers.All participants were comprehensively examined using MRI scans before and after e-cigarette inhalation, with each participant inhaling 16, three-second puffs on an e-cigarette device. The results revealed significant immediate systemic changes in vascular function. On average, this single session of e-cigarette use resulted in a 34 percent reduction in the femoral artery’s dilation, a 20 percent reduction in venous oxygen, and a 17.5 percent drop in peak blood flow.”While e-cigarette liquid may be relatively harmless, the vaporization process can transform the molecules – primarily propylene glycol and glycerol – into toxic substances,” says Felix Wehrli, principal investigator on the study. “Beyond the harmful effects of nicotine, we’ve shown that vaping has a sudden, immediate effect on the body’s vascular function, and could potentially lead to long-term harmful consequences.”The researchers are clear in the study that the causal mechanism generating these observed effects is still unknown. It is unclear exactly what constituents in the aerosol could be causing the damage, however, the removal of nicotine from the study allows the researchers to at the very least rule that chemical out.The study also does not indicate how long these vascular alterations remain following e-cigarette use. The researchers note that longer term work in larger cohorts will be important in understanding how permanently damaging these effects are.”I would warn young people to not even get started using e-cigarettes,” says Wehrli. “The common belief is that the nicotine is what is toxic, but we have found that dangers exist, independent of nicotine. Clearly if there is an effect after a single use of an e-cigarette, then you can imagine what kind of permanent damage could be caused after vaping regularly over years.”The new study appears at a moment when e-cigarette safety is in the broader national spotlight. Earlier in August the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported a cluster of hospitalizations of teenagers with lung damage. These instances of severe lung disease in teenagers and young adults are being associated with heavy e-cigarette use.A more recent media statement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), claims there have now been 94 cases of hospitalization with lung disease possibly associated with vaping. This tally has reportedly risen to 127 cases across 15 states, with e-cigarette use being the only common factor linking all the patients.The CDC’s involvement in the matter is one of consultation to the different state departments of health reporting the cases. The CDC notes it is unclear if these hospitalizations are directly caused by e-cigarette use or whether an unknown infectious agent is involved.The new research was published in the journal Radiology.Source: Penn Medicine News We recommend Do you treat systemic lupus erythematosus?
