Carragher Liverpool Man City set for a thrilling title battle

first_imgJamie Carragher expects Liverpool and Manchester City to push each other all the way for the second half of the seasonFollowing Friday’s 2-0 win at Wolves, Liverpool have temporarily extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to four points over City.Pep Guardiola’s side can reduce that deficit to a point by beating Crystal Palace today at the Etihad Stadium.But Carragher believes that City will have to dig deep this season if they are to retain their league crown.“At the end of the season, whichever side goes on to win the title, the one who comes second is going to have an unbelievable points tally that, almost any other season would win the league,” Carragher told Sky Sports.“You’ll probably feel for whoever misses out, whether that’s City or Liverpool.“City, in the last 18 months, have just gone away from everyone. There was no real challenge last season. It felt like the season was over at this stage last season.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“The fact Liverpool are with them now it maybe asks questions of this Man City side that we haven’t seen before.“I’m sure they’ll answer them – I’m not questioning them in that way. But I think it’s nice we have someone chasing this City side.“This City side is a special side, and I think over the next four or five years we will be speaking about a special team in this Premier League era. But could a side win the league three or four years on the bounce?“The great Manchester United sides found that difficult. There’s always someone who wins the league out of nowhere. Could this be the season when someone else actually wins it, and could it be Liverpool?”Carragher is a former centre-back who played for Liverpool throughout his entire career between 1996 to 2013.The ex-England international made 737 appearances for the Reds and won the FA Cup (2x), League Cup (3x), a UEFA Cup and the Champions League.last_img read more

Learn whether car salary sacrifice risks have become a reality at Employee

first_imgThose attending Employee Benefits Connect can gain insight into the potential risks around car salary sacrifice arrangements, and how to select risk mitigation approaches that best suit their organisation.In the session ‘Salary sacrifice for cars: evolving solutions and the truth about risks’, Claire Evans, head of fleet consultancy at Zenith, will examine the risks around car salary sacrifice, how employers can assess their level of risk in each area, and how to effectively model risk based on different scenarios.The session will also discuss the perceived risks around car salary sacrifice and whether these have become a reality.In the same session, Sophie Martin, category specialist, supply chain management at NATS, will discuss the risks the air traffic control organisation identified in its car salary sacrifice arrangement, the steps it took to mitigate these risks and how effective these contingencies have been.Evans (pictured) said: “The session will identify what the risks are. The risks are not going to be the same for everybody so we will look at what the specific risks are [for different organisations] and at assessing the amount of risk in the different areas.“I’d hope attendees leave the session with a complete understanding of how real car salary sacrifice risks are likely to be for their particular organisations, I’d also like them to be able to evaluate the best risk mitigation solution that will work for them.”Employee Benefits Connect will take place on Wednesday 9 March at the Lancaster London.For more information and to register to attend.last_img read more

Tweets aside Sullivan says Trump good for Alaska

first_imgU.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan studies notes just before his annual address to the state Legislature. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Sen. Dan Sullivan, in his annual address to the state Legislature, said he doesn’t like all of President Trump’s tweets but he likes what the Trump administration is doing for Alaska. There’s not a lot of daylight between them when you look at the senator’s voting record.Listen nowBarely two minutes into the speech, Sullivan made the rhetorical equivalent of an eye-roll. It was as he was saying he sees the annual address as an opportunity to step back and look at the big picture.“But being in elected office, we can get caught up in the news of the day,” Sullivan said. “Sometimes as a result of an intemperate tweet or two. Or three. Or four. ”During the 2016 presidential election, Sullivan called on Trump to step down as the Republican nominee after the “Access Hollywood” tape became public. Whatever their differences in style, Sullivan and Trump are alike on many policies. According to the data-crunchers at the website FiveThirtyEight, Sullivan’s votes agree with Trump’s position more than 95 percent of the time. (Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s Trump-agreement score is 83 percent The average for Republicans is just over 92 percent.)In his speech, Sullivan made it clear he’s embracing what Trump DOES, at least for Alaska. As for what the president SAYS, Sullivan is keeping some distance.“I disagree with a number of the statements and tweets made by President Trump,” Sullivan said. “But in terms of a federal government that is finally working to help grow Alaska’s economy, we are making significant progress.”Sullivan cited new opportunities for oil development in the Arctic Refuge and elsewhere, the president’s support for a King Cove road and progress on the gas line.“And the feds are also listening to us as we continue to place well-qualified Alaskans into the highest levels of the federal government,” Sullivan said.Sullivan named five Alaskans working in the Trump administration: Joe Balash is at the Interior Department, in charge of oil & gas on federal lands. Chris Oliver oversees federal fisheries at NOAA. Drue Pearce is at the Transportation Department. Chris Hladick is the EPA administrator for Alaska and the Northwest, and Tara Sweeney has been nominated to be assistant Interior secretary for Indian Affairs.Sullivan said the Alaskan Trump appointees will protect Alaska’s interests as they apply national policies.On gun control, Sullivan says he’ll evaluate proposals arising out of the latest school shooting.“However, as Alaskans we understand how important our 2nd Amendment rights are,” Sullivan said. “We use firearms not only for self-defense but as a tool to feed our families.”At a press conference afterward, Sullivan said he has “serious doubts” about President Trump’s proposal to raise the age limit for guns to 21.“I mean, to me, that would not work in Alaska,” Sullivan said.Sullivan says the problem of school violence should be considered more broadly.“Which includes, Are we poisoning the minds of our children by having them watch movies and video games that glorify killing people?” Sullivan said. “I mean just turn on any movie. Those didn’t exist 20 or 30 years ago.”Sullivan said he knows wading into cultural issues could make him vulnerable for ridicule. He raised the specter of Tipper Gore. She was mocked in the 80s for campaigning to get warning stickers on albums with profane lyrics. But Sullivan said it’s important to consider culture in the debate over how to keep children safe.State Sen. Berta Gardner, a Democrat from Anchorage, said Sullivan gave a strong speech that hit many of the points legislators wanted to hear. She said, though, she wished he’d talked about increasing Alaska’s share of revenues from offshore drilling, and that he’d said more about advancing the gas line.KTOO reporter Andrew Kitchenman contributed to this report.last_img read more

CCI fines cement companies Rs 205 crore for cartelisation in Haryana

first_imgIn picture: Workers unload cement bags from a truck near the construction site of residential buildings in New Delhi, India, March 10, 2016. [Representational image]Reuters fileThe Competition Commission of India (CCI) has imposed a total fine of more than Rs 205 crore on seven cement companies for rigging the bid of a tender floated for the procurement of cement by the Haryana government in 2012.  Also read: JSW Cement, other investors to buy out stake in Shiva Cement It may be noted that the CCI had in August last year fined 11 cement-manufacturing companies and the Cement Manufacturers’ Association (CMA) — in two separate orders — a total of around Rs. 6,700 crore on charges of cartelisation, and CMA for facilitating it.Heavy finesThis time, according to a Ministry of Corporate Affairs statement, the seven cement companies, “through their impugned conduct, have engaged in bid-rigging…, which eliminated and lessened competition and manipulated the bidding process in respect of the impugned tender.” The case deals with “procurement of cement to be supplied to government departments, boards and corporations in the state of Haryana,” according to the Union ministry’s statement.The Ministry statement further said: “Accordingly, penalty of Rs 18.44 crore, Rs 68.30 crore, Rs 38.02 crore, Rs 9.26 crore, Rs 29.84 crore, Rs 35.32 crore and Rs 6.55 crore has been imposed upon Shree Cement Limited, UltraTech Cement Limited, Jaiprakash Associates Limited, JK Cement Limited, Ambuja Cements Limited, ACC Limited and JK Lakshmi Cement Limited.” The fine amount is 0.3 percent of the average annual turnover of the companies over the past three years. Fines on cement companies [All figures in Rs crore]IBTimesHow the cartelisation was uncoveredThe Ministry of Corporate Affairs said in its statement: “The bid-rigging has been established from quoting of unusually higher rates in the impugned tender (than rates quoted in tenders of previous years), determining different basic prices for supply of cement at the same destination through reverse calculation, quoting of quantities in the impugned tender such that the total bid quantity almost equalled the total tendered quantity, quoting of rates for the districts in a manner that all cement companies acquired L1 status at some of the destination(s) etc.”It added: “The anti-competitive conduct was reaffirmed through SMS exchanged and calls made amongst the officials of the cement companies.”last_img read more

The service will go offline on June 19, announced Favstar founder Tim Haines over the weekend. Haines blamed Twitter’s decision to change the way it shares data with outside companies for Favstar’s demise.Twitter had announced back in December that it would change the way it is sharing data with outside companies on June 19. These changes effectively put an end to some of its existing data formats, while introducing a new developer interface.Haines argued this weekend that the company has neglected developers. “Twitter wrote that they’ll be replacing this with another method of data access, but have not been forthcoming with the details or pricing,” he said. “Favstar can’t continue to operate in this environment of uncertainty.” Popular on Variety center_img Twitter didn’t respond to Haines’ criticism Monday, but the company had previously announced that it would postpone shutting off third-party apps by 90 days beyond the June 19 deadline to give developers enough time to transition to its new Account Activity API.Favstar launched all the way back in 2009, and clocked more than 50 million visits at its heyday. The service was financed via a paid pro membership. In addition to running Favstar, Haines has also been the co-founder of a startup that is building tools for developers.last_img read more

Google cuts power bill by putting AI in control of data centers

first_imgGoogle acquired the mysterious artificial intelligence startup DeepMind two years ago. No one knew what DeepMind was doing or why Google would want it. DeepMind now sits outside Google as an Alphabet company, and we have seen some of what the company’s advanced AI is capable of. DeepMind has taught a computer to play Atari games, simulated short term memory, and developed a bot that can beat the best Go players on Earth. Now, it’s saving Google money in data centers.One of Google’s top expenses is the power consumed by its data centers, and more specifically, the power it takes to cool them. Just like your computer generates heat, so do the servers in Google’s data centers — row after row of servers radiating heat, which is bad for server reliability. Google has been using machine learning to tune its cooling system for several years, but then DeepMind researchers started deploying the company’s AI several months ago to improve efficiency.DeepMind created a system of neural networks and trained it on the data center’s PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness). That’s how much total energy is used versus the building’s IT energy usage. Additional networks were trained to predict temperature in the future based on historic data. The DeepMind AI was given control of 120 variables in a real Google data center including fans, cooling systems, and windows.The results were rather staggering. With machine learning active, the facility used 40% less power keeping cool. That relates to a total PUE reduction of 15% across the entire data center. The graph above shows the difference when the machine learning powered by DeepMind was turned on and off. Google plans to roll this out to more data centers soon and will publish a paper with details.last_img read more

Luxims tiny plasma lightbulb outshines LEDs

first_img Explore further A Tic-Tac-sized lightbulb that gives off as much light as a streetlamp may offer a peek at the ultra-efficient lighting of the future. The bulb, developed by Luxim of Sunnyvale, California, uses plasma technology to achieve its brightness. Citation: Luxim’s tiny plasma lightbulb outshines LEDs (2008, March 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-03-luxim-tiny-plasma-lightbulb-outshines.html New nanomaterial to replace mercurycenter_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The tiny bulb contains an argon gas in the middle, as well as a component called a “puck.” The bulb is partially embedded in a dielectric material. When electrical energy is delivered to the puck, the puck acts like an electrical lens. It heats up the argon to a temperature of 6000 degrees Kelvin, and turns the gas into a plasma that gives off light. The plasma, whose 6000-degree temperature is similar to that of the surface of the sun, also emits a spectrum that looks very similar to the spectrum of sunlight.The plasma bulb uses 250 watts, and achieves around 140 lumens per watt, making it very bright and highly efficient. By comparison, conventional lightbulbs and high-end LEDs get around 15 and 70 lumens per watt, respectively. “A key advantage is that the energy is driven into the bulb without any electrodes, so you don’t need any electrical connections to get the energy into the bulb,” Luxim CEO Tony McGettigan explained to ZDNet. Luxim is using different versions of its electrode-less plasma technology to develop lighting for ultra-bright projection displays, retail and street lighting, microscope lighting, and various medical applications.More information: Luxim.com via: ZDNetlast_img read more

Encrypt your DNS traffic with Simple DNSCrypt for Windows

first_imgEncrypt your DNS traffic with Simple DNSCrypt for Windows by Martin Brinkmann on February 19, 2018 in Software – Last Update: April 06, 2018 – 36 commentsSimple DNSCrypt is a free open source program for Microsoft’s Windows operating system to configure dnscrypt-proxy on Windows-based PCs and devices.DNS Crypt is a technology that encrypts DNS look ups so that third-parties cannot spy on those. While some programs or services, VPN Services for instance, protect your look-ups automatically, most DNS traffic is not encrypted.OpenDNS introduced DNSCrypt support back in 2012 but DNSCrypt was pioneered by the OpenBSD operating system years before that. It uses encryption to protect against man-in-the-middle attacks.SimpleDNSCryptSimple DNSCrypt is an easy to use program for Windows that brings the functionality to Microsoft’s operating system. It is not the first program to do so, DNSCrypt Windows Service Manager was released in 2014, but it is a feature-rich solution but it is no longer in active development.Simple DNSCrypt utilizes DNSCrypt Proxy which is also available for Windows and other operating systems.The user interface is divided into several tabs.Main Menu — lists configuration options, e.g. use of servers and available network cards.Resolvers — lists the available DNS Resolvers and offers configuration options.Advanced Settings — additional settings that change core functionality.Query Log — A log that is disabled by default.A click on the settings icon gives you options to add additional tabs to the program interface which you may use to blacklist and whitelist domains, and check the domain block log.Activate the DNSCrypt Service after you have configured the options to your liking to get started with the application. Once you have done so, select the network cards that you want the service to run on.This is the bare-minimum configuration to encrypt your DNS traffic. It is recommended that you go through the settings before you enable the server to make sure all is set up correctly.Simple DNSCrypt lists IPv4 servers by default only and blocks IPv6-related queries. You enable IPv6 servers under main menu and unblock IPv6-related queries under Advanced Settings.The program retries resolvers that support DNSSEC and don’t log or filter traffic by default. You can uncheck these options as well if you want but it is recommended that you don’t unless you run into issues.Simple DNSCrypt runs in automatic mode by default. The service picks the fastest resolver from the list of available servers and uses it. You can switch that off under resolvers by selecting one or multiple resolvers from the list. This may take a bit of testing to make sure performance is fine.The advanced settings give you more control over the service’s functionality. You can disable DNS caching there for instance. Simply put, if caching is enabled, Simple DNSCrypt tries to find the information in the cache before resolvers are used to look-up the information.There is also an option to Force TCP, and to uninstall the Windows service.Uninstallation worked without issues on several test systems.Closing WordsSimple DNSCrypt is an easy to use program for Windows to protect DNS queries against man-in-the-middle attacks. One downside of the project is that you don’t have control over the resolvers. There is no option, at least none is in the UI, to add custom resolvers. This means, basically, that you have to trust at least one of the servers used.Now You: Do you encrypt your DNS traffic?Related articlesEncryption and Strong PasswordsHow to encrypt Windows 10 hard drives using BitLockerHow to Speed Up a slow loading websiteProtonMail Bridge: encrypted email for Outlook, Thunderbird, and other email clientsQuad9 DNS promises better privacy and securitySummary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 10 votes Software Name Simple DnsCryptOperating System WindowsSoftware Category NetworkingLanding Page https://github.com/bitbeans/SimpleDnsCrypt Advertisementlast_img read more

Suspected extremists attack school in northeast Nigeria

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober A second bomb exploded in the college dormitory, but all the students apparently were already in classrooms.Five students were wounded by gunfire and another 45 people are being treated for injuries sustained as they jumped out of windows and over walls to escape the attackers, the hospital worker said.Those injured include schoolchildren from the neighboring Government Science Secondary School, who also thought they were under attack. At least 40 students were killed when Boko Haram attacked that school last year.In Friday’s attack, the gunmen arrived around 8 a.m. (0700 GMT) and opened fire at the gate of the business school, witnesses said. Security guards armed only with clubs ran away, but soldiers and police quickly rushed to the scene, said the witnesses who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.The fate of the other attackers is unclear. Military and police spokesmen did not immediately respond to requests for information.It is the first school attack reported since a 3-month-old multinational offensive drove Boko Haram out of towns and villages seized last year where the insurgents, who are allied to the Islamic State group, declared an Islamic caliphate.
