  • Newcastle suffer early League Cup exit, Everton roll on

    first_imgNewcastle boss Rafa Benitez had been fiercely criticised for his negative approach in defeat to Chelsea on Sunday that left the Magpies with just one point from their opening three league games.Benitez made seven changes for the visit to the City Ground but those coming in did their case little good as Daryl Murphy headed the hosts in front inside two minutes.That looked like being enough for Forest, until Salomon Rondon registered his first Newcastle with practically the visitors’ first decent chance two minutes into stoppage time.However, Forest weren’t to be denied as Matty Cash and Gil Dias struck in six added minutes to reach the last 32.Everton got the job done much earlier as Gylfi Sigurdsson and a double from Dominic Calvert-Lewin eased Marco Silva’s men into the next round with a 3-1 win at Goodison.Watford may be joint top of the Premier League with three wins from three, but the Hornets also have impressive depth as Javi Gracia made 11 changes for a 2-0 victory at Reading.Isaac Success and Domingos Quina on his debut ensured it was a successful night for Gracia’s men.Millwall also reached round three after twice coming from behind to beat Plymouth 3-2 thanks to Aiden O’Brien’s 89th minute winner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Salomon Rondon protested with the referee after Nottingham Forest scored their third goal momentsLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 29 – Newcastle’s miserable start to the season suffered another blow with a dramatic late 3-1 defeat to Championship side Nottingham Forest on Wednesday to crash out of the League Cup at the second round.There was no such strife for Premier League high flyers Everton and Watford, who continued their unbeaten starts to the campaign with victories over Rotherham and Reading respectively to make round three.last_img read more

  • Our aircraft are better than yours

    first_img“Our aircraft fly higher, faster and further and more efficiently [than the competition].”Boeing’s  SVP of Global Sales and Marketing John Wojick opened the 2016 Farnborough Air Show with this bold statement  that Boeing was better equipped than Airbus to supply the world’s airlines to meet the soaring demand.Mr Wojick answering a question about the success of Airbus’s 230-seat A321 NEO said he was very happy with Boeing’s record backlog of 5740 aircraft worth $424 billion.SEE 787’s AMAZING DEMO FLIGHTHowever, Airbus, is recording record production rates for its 150-230 seat A320 Family and its all new 300-360 seat A350.Boeing’s VP of Marketing, Randy Tinseth, said that Boeing’s forecast demand for 39,620 new aircraft worth $5.9 trillion over the next 20 years,was an increase of 4.1 percent over last year’s forecast.“Despite recent events that have impacted the financial markets, the aviation sector will continue to see long-term growth with the commercial fleet doubling in size,” said Mr Tinseth.“We expect to see passenger traffic grow 4.8 percent a year over the next two decades.”The single-aisle market will be especially strong with low-cost carriers and emerging markets driving growth. He said that 28,140 new airplanes will be needed in this segment, an increase of more than 5 percent over last year.“There’s no question the heart of the single-aisle market is around the new  [186-seat] Boeing MAX 8 and the current 737-800NG. Aircraft of that size already account for 76 percent of the global single-aisle backlog, and our products have the clear advantage in that space.”On the wide body side, 9,100 aircraft are in the forecast, with a large wave of potential replacement demand in the 2021- 2028 time frame. Boeing projects a continued shift from very large aircraft [A380s and 747s] to small and medium wide bodies such as the 787, 777 and 777X.With cargo traffic forecasted to grow at 4.2 percent per year, Boeing projects the need for 930 new freighters and 1,440 converted freighters.AIR TRAFFIC SLOWSAirbus the giant European based multi national, also released its forecast for the 20 years to 2035.It says that passenger traffic will grow at an average 4.5 per cent a year, driving a need for over 33,000 new aircraft above 100 seats worth US$5.2 trillion.By 2035, Airbus says the world’s aircraft fleet will have doubled from today’s 19,500 aircraft to almost 40,000. Some 13,000 passenger and freighter aircraft will be replaced with more fuel efficient types.It says that globally, by 2035, 62 percent of world population will be city dwellers and the number of aviation mega cities will rise from 55 to 93 by 2035.These centres of wealth creation many 47 of which are already schedule constrained airports, will account for 35 percent of world GDP. In 20 years the number of daily long haul passengers travelling to, from, or via aviation mega cities, will more than double to 2.5 million.Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers John Leahy said that “while established European and North American markets continue to grow, Asia-Pacific is the engine powering growth in the next 20 years. China will soon be the world’s biggest aviation market and together with emerging economies, further population concentration, and wealth creation, together these will help to fuel strong air traffic growth.”“We are ramping up production to meet market demand for our leading aircraft products and we will also ramp up our customer service offerings to meet the increasing demands of air transportation.”In the wide body market, Airbus forecasts a trend towards higher capacity aircraft and forecasts a requirement for over 9,500 wide body passenger and freighter aircraft over the next 20 years valued at some US$2.8 trillion. This represents 29 per cent of all new aircraft deliveries and 54 per cent by value. Most wide body deliveries (46 per cent) will be in the Asia Pacific region. In this segment says Mr Leahy, Airbus’ A330, A330neo, A350 XWB and the A380 offer the most comprehensive wide body product range between 200 and above 600 seatsIn the single aisle market, where the A320 Family and the latest generation A320neo Family are firmly established as the global market leaders, Airbus forecasts a need for over 23,500 new aircraft worth US$2.4 trillion.last_img read more

  • It Happened To Me: My Small Business Was Hacked!

    first_imgWhat Nobody Teaches You About Getting Your Star… rieva lesonsky Tags:#hack#security#small business Last September, shortly after the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, a company tweeted me that they were going to make our site, SmallBizDaily.com, their “small business resource of the day.” My joy was short-lived when the next morning they tweeted that my site had been hacked.I quickly checked (it was still early morning on the West Coast, where we’re located) and sure enough, instead of the usual array of small-business content I was greeted by an unfamiliar image of a Middle Eastern-looking man, Arabic lettering and a video about the glories of Allah. I blinked, gulped more caffeine and reloaded the page. No luck — the image was still there. “We’ve been hacked,” I muttered, still not believing what I was seeing.Weeks Of Agony – Months Of WorkThen followed two weeks of agony and struggle as our Web-hosting company worked to deal with the situation, while also helping their many other small-business clients who had been hacked as well.It seems someone had placed malicious code on our site that lay dormant for months — and only popped up that morning. “It was like cancer,” recalls my business partner, who dealt with the situation. “To make sure [the code] was really gone, we had to clean out all of the files we had loaded since the initial hack.”Months of work was wiped out — and every time we thought it was fixed, the hack popped up again. I was repeatedly embarrassed; it seemed every time I would tell someone (including the company that originally told me about the hack) the site was fine, within minutes the hack would reappear. We then had to delete and reload more files, more times than I care to remember.We Were Lucky!Believe it or not, my company was one of the lucky ones. David Maman, founder and CTO of database security company GreenSQL, said our hack was the “old-fashioned” kind.“Five or 10 years ago, the purpose of hacking was defacement,” explained Maman, an international expert in computer security who has founded seven tech companies. “It was very obvious when you were hacked — a friend would call and say ‘Hey, what’s going on with your website?’ Today, with a successful SQL injection hack, there will be no sign that someone has retrieved your entire database.”How can you be hacked without knowing it? If it can happen to Sony and LinkedIn, he said, it can certainly happen to your small business.Tech Startups Especially VulnerableIronically, tech startups — with their low budgets, long hours and cocky techies coding day and night on their personal laptops and mobile devices — may actually be more vulnerable to hacks than less tech-oriented businesses.Changes in the nature of business have affected how hackers operate, said Maman, “Everything is about online today, and almost every [business] is providing some type of online service or app. As a result, the line between internal and external data is blurred, and all of your information is exposed.”You might think you have nothing to worry about if you aren’t selling products or collecting card data online. Think again, he says, who explains that most hack attacks today are completely automated. “They don’t even know who you are — they just check websites for vulnerabilities, and if they find them, they will attack.”In fact, ecommerce companies or other businesses that collect customer credit and payment data may be less at risk of hacking because they must be PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant. “These regulations are actually beneficial,” said Maman.What if, like so many small business owners, you simply provide a free app or service? All you’re collecting from customers is their registration information, which could be as simple as their name and email — so what do you care if it’s compromised?“Data is the new currency,” he warned — and that includes any type of data, not just financial information.Maman explained that hackers may manipulate customer data to inject malicious code that serves up competitors’ information instead of your own, penetrates the customer’s computer, or worse.“It’s not about losing information — which may not be worth that much — but about harming your customers, hurting your brand and destroying your reputation.”If a customer’s computer gets infected after using your service, are they likely to return? Worst of all, you won’t even know your business has been hacked until it slowly withers and dies as customers fade away.What To Do If It Happens To You?“If in the past it was a big taboo to let customers know that you’ve been hacked, today it’s not,” he said, citing LinkedIn as an example. “Letting your customers know won’t hurt you — it will show that you’re being responsible.”Ask them to change their passwords on your site and on any other sites where they use the same password. Apologize; then explain what measures you will take to make sure the hack won’t happen again.Beef Up Your DefenseThose measures should include three key steps:1. Secure your coding. “Most of the basic attacks, and even some of the more advanced ones, are due to unprofessional coding,” said Maman. “There’s a lot of information online about how to secure coding.” Educate yourself and take the steps.2. Harden your computers at the operating-system level, applications level, server level, network-access level and even the individual customer level. Hardening essentially means eliminating unnecessary software, restricting access and otherwise blocking everything that is not essential. “Hardening documentation can be found online,” he said.3. Use free and open-source software. Security doesn’t have to cost a lot for a small business. “ModSecurity is a free, open-source Web application firewall,” said Maman. “GreenSQL Express is our free database firewall.”Most of all, pay attention to security. Without the money for a dedicated IT security staffer, your team needs to be even more responsible than big-company employees about what’s running on their devices.Don’t worry; security doesn’t have to be a business killer.“People think of IT security as a hassle, a lot of work and a waste of time,” he said. “That’s not the case. Just one day’s work can increase your security level 100%.”Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

  • Video Tutorial: Using RED Look Files to Improve Your Shooting

    first_imgRED shares a quick tutorial for creating and saving your looks to an Epic or Scarlet – great for visualizing a specific look on set.Say you’re looking to achieve a unique visual style with your project and are planning to apply a very specific color grade in post.  In most situations, the best you could do on set is estimate how these post-production treatments will effect your image, trying to account for them in your lighting and shot setup.  RED’s changing this precedent, by allowing the DP and crew to actually see these color grades through the camera monitor while shooting, using REDCINE-X PRO.The process of getting the look files from the camera, through a digital intermediate setup and back to camera is surprisingly simple. Capture a sample shot, save it to your RED Mag and open in REDCINE-X PRO. Apply color grading to the shot, save the RED Look file to the Mag and it’s back to camera.  Now you can actually see the grade applied to the live image and make adjustments to the lighting, setup, wardrobe, etc. before the camera even starts rolling.Because the RED ONE, Epic and Scarlet shoot data-rich RAW files, you have great latitude to further modify the image when you get it into post. The Look file is RED metadata (note the extension .RMD), making it easy to keep the grade you used on set, modify it or drop it altogether.Use the RED Look file to develop a good baseline for your shooting.  The ability to see color grades in camera is one way that RED is improving the production process and empowering the filmmaker.For more REDCINE-X PRO tutorials check out the official RED Digital Cinema Vimeo page.last_img read more

  • Leonard Quiet on Future as Raptors Celebrate with Parade (Video)

    first_imgTORONTO — Fresh off leading the Toronto Raptors to their first NBA title, Kawhi Leonard received the key to the city at Monday’s championship parade.For now, however, the two-way star and two-time NBA Finals MVP still isn’t saying whether he’ll use it to keep a door open, or close it behind him and move on.Leonard spent several days partying with his teammates in Las Vegas and Los Angeles after last Thursday’s Game 6 clincher, returning to Toronto in time to ride in one of five open-top double decker buses that carried the Raptors along a crowded parade route.A three-time All-Star and two-time NBA defensive player of the year, Leonard is expected to decline the player option on the final year of his contract and become a free agent. Toronto can offer him a five-year deal worth around $190 million, one year and some $50 million more than any other team.Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard and his girlfriend Kishele Shipley take a seat as their daughter Kaliyah naps during the NBA basketball championship team’s victory parade in Toronto, Monday, June 17, 2019. (Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)Before stepping on stage Monday for a ceremony in the square outside Toronto’s City Hall, Leonard said he hasn’t been thinking about his future. Instead, he’s trying to extend the celebratory vibe as long as possible.“I’m enjoying this” he said. “It’s not time to stress, it’s still time to have some fun. I’ve just been enjoying my experience.”After precisely two months of playoff basketball, Leonard doesn’t have a lot of time left to be a fun guy — free agency gets underway at 6 p.m. on June 30.“I’m going to take the right time,” he said. “You don’t need too many days to figure it out. We’ll see what happens. Once that time comes, then we’ll all lay the pros and cons out.”Visibly bothered by soreness during stretches of the Eastern Conference Finals against Milwaukee, Leonard declined to say how much pain he endured en route to winning his second career title.“We’re always battling through things,” he said. “You know, knee pains, ankles, fingers. Everybody was just grinding it out.”Injured for all but nine games in his final season with San Antonio, Leonard played 60 regular-season games for Toronto and another 24 in the postseason, upping his minutes once April arrived.Toronto Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard holds his MVP trophy while celebrating with rapper/producer Drake during the team’s NBA basketball championship parade in Toronto, Monday, June 17, 2019. (Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP)While winning a trophy was an obvious success, Leonard said he’s enjoyed all aspects of his season north of the border, even the varied Canadian weather.“It was a good experience, experiencing Mother Nature, all four seasons,” he said. “Man, it was a great experience. Everybody off the court was great. The fans, just meeting people in Canada. It’s been fun.”Fans chanted ‘Stay! Stay! Stay!’ when Toronto mayor John Tory presented Leonard with the key.Later, the festive mood of the event was marred by gunfire. Four people were shot, leading to a stampede. Three people were arrested and two guns were recovered, Toronto police said.Leonard is one of three Raptors starters with uncertain futures. Center Marc Gasol also has a player option, while guard Danny Green is a free agent.Guards Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet, and forward Serge Ibaka, are heading into the final year of their deals.Ibaka and Leonard have become friends in their time together as teammates.“I’ve been talking with him a lot during the season and in the playoffs, but after we won, I can see the man is happy,” Ibaka said. “That’s the most important. We play this sport because we want to enjoy and have fun and be happy and be somewhere people love you. I’m sure he feels that people here love him, and after this moment, that’s the most important.”Lowry attended the parade wearing a game-worn Damon Stoudamire pinstripe Raptors jersey. Stoudamire was the first player drafted by Toronto in 1995, and won rookie of the year honors in 1996. Lowry and Stoudamire were teammates in Memphis from 2006 to 2008.By: Ian Harrison, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

  • Gundy Made the Right Choice in Henson After Much Change at OL Coach

    first_imgWhat is most impressive about Oklahoma State’s newest offensive line coach, Josh Henson, is the deserved praise he’s receiving, despite what he hasn’t done yet for the Cowboys: coached in a game.Henson was hired in early February, taking over for Greg Adkins, who took over for Bob Connelly, who took over for Joe Wickline. For scope of the turnover the offensive line coach position has had, senior right tackle Zach Crabtree has been at OSU for all four of those coaching stints in Stillwater. Four coaches in five years. That’s a lot.Finally though, Gundy has hired someone who will work hard, have success and stay. Although the second check box on that list hasn’t been proven, Crabtree endorsed it whole-heartedly.“His knowledge is unbelievable,” Crabtree said. “I’m learning something new every day I go in there right now.”Crabtree has been at OSU since 2014 so it’s impressive that he is still learning and perhaps even more impressive that he’s learning from so much from someone as relatively young as Henson is. Henson has the patience needed to deal with a group of twenty-somethings, Crabtree said.“But at the same time, he has no problem jumping on you if you’re gonna make a mistake and going off on you,” Crabtree said.Crab said those traits make Henson an ideal coach and “a guy you wanna play for.” That’s when players are at their best, he said. All of that comes more naturally because Henson has been through everything the current Cowboys are going through. He played at OSU, too, from 1994-97.Because of Henson’s wealth of experience in Stillwater, Crabtree said that “absolutely” brings something different that the previous offensive line coaches did not have.“When you’ve got a guy that’s done it, no doubt, there’s another sense of pride that he’s been here and now he’s back,” Crabtree said.That’s only half of the story of Henson’s early success in his newest role at OSU though. His pick ups on the recruiting trail have been fast and furious.Within the first four months in office, Henson had earned five offensive line commits. In last year’s class, Adkins signed just one.It’s unlikely Henson keeps up this pace into the 2019 class and beyond, simply because of scholarship distribution. But through his six-month review, he has undoubtedly proven his worth, ability and loyalty to a program and a position that has desperately needed exactly that for years.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

The difference between the two sides was they put their opportunities away and we didn’t.“We were good in the first half and they scored against the run of play. It was very difficult towards the end when we were down to ten men, but certainly before that I thought we were always in the game.“It was a wonderful strike by Brooks for the first goal, but I thought we created really good chances of our own.“If you don’t put your chances away, then you know that a very good Bournemouth side that play with a lot of pace, with two players up front that run in behind, are going to cause you problems.“The chances are the pinnacle moments of any game, but on the balance of play, I thought we deserved more.”On Lewis Dunk’s dismissal, he added: “Initially we had no problems with it, we thought it was two yellow cards, but seeing them again, we feel that [Yves] Bissouma made the first contact, so there’s some doubt about who should have been booked.” last_img read more

  • ExBlackwater contractor found guilty in 2007 Iraq shooting

    first_imgWASHINGTON — A former Blackwater security contractor has been convicted of murder at his third trial in the 2007 shooting of unarmed civilians in Iraq.Nicholas Slatten, of Sparta, Tennessee, was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday in Washington.Prosecutors say Slatten was the first to fire shots in the killings of 14 Iraqi civilians at a crowded traffic circle in Baghdad. The shooting strained relations with Iraq and drew intense scrutiny of the role of American contractors in the Iraq War.The defence had argued that Slatten opened fire because he thought a bomb-laden car was headed toward his convoy.An appeals court had overturned his 2014 conviction, saying he should have been tried separately from three other men. A jury couldn’t reach a verdict in his second trial last summer.Michael Balsamo, The Associated Presslast_img read more
