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

  • The ServeAndVolley Works But Womens Tennis Players Arent Using It

    Women at this year’s U.S. Open have displayed incredible athleticism and shrewd strategy. We’ve seen blistering serves and masterful groundstrokes in the nearly two weeks of play. But we’ve been missing a powerful, ancient weapon: the serve-and-volley. The tactic is all but extinct from women’s tennis, despite still being incredibly effective.Through the quarterfinals in Flushing Meadows, on points in which women followed their serve by rushing to the net for a volley, they won a remarkable 76 percent of the time, according to U.S. Open data from IBM. But confoundingly, the strategy was deployed only 84 times — less than 1 percent of all points played.Serena Williams, for her part, flashed the potential of the serve-and-volley in her semifinal win Thursday over Anastasija Sevastova. Williams came to the net five times immediately after serving, taking four of those points.After the match, Williams said she usually approaches the net “only to shake hands,” but she wanted to try something different against Sevastova. It was a reminder of just how potent the tactic can be.The serve-and-volley appears to be used more on the men’s side of late. At this year’s U.S. Open, men served and volleyed 488 times through the quarterfinals, for just less than 3 percent of all points played. Though they couldn’t quite equal the gaudy success rate of the women, they still did very well with the tactic, winning 66 percent of the time. No matter who’s doing it, statistically, the serve-and-volley is an effective way to win points.Why this play is underutilized has long been a topic of discussion in tennis. Some have chalked up the change in tactics to advanced racquets and strings that improve passing shots, while others have blamed slower courts at Wimbledon and this year’s U.S. Open.1Theoretically, slower courts allow players more time to tee off on returns, blowing by net rushers. But there’s no doubt that women have been giving serve-and-volley the cold shoulder.During the late 1970s and ’80s, Martina Navratilova dominated the sport using an attacking serve-and-volley style with monsterous success, propelling her to 18 Grand Slam Championships. Even in the 1990s, serve-and-volley was still in a heyday in the women’s game. To illustrate, look at Wimbledon. It’s a place where serve-and-volley has historically been a favorite tactic because of the ability of the server to dominate on grass, where the ball bounces are low. Returners must put loft on their shots to ensure they clear the net. That’s a feast for a volleyer.Wimbledon first released serve-and-volley data in 1997, and it included tournament totals for the first time in 2002. Jana Novotna served and volleyed her way to the final that year, losing to Martina Hingis. For the tournament, Novotna employed the serve-and-volley 339 times, winning 213 of those points. In the final against Hingis, she used it 76 times — almost as often as the entire women’s field through five rounds at this year’s U.S. Open. It’s an astounding drop of a tactic and a big shift in the way women play tennis.Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam that releases historical data, but we can look at its last 17 tournaments to track the decline of serve-and-volley as a strategy in the women’s game: Assuming the point does not end on an ace or double-fault, serving players essentially have two choices: serve and move forward or serve and stay at the baseline. Since the 2000s, players who prefer to remain mainly at the baseline have taken over tennis, despite the unshakably consistent success rates for serve-and-volley over the years. But the difference between the strategies has been stark at this year’s U.S. Open: Through the quarterfinals, women have won just 48 percent of points at the baseline — 28 percentage points less than the share of points won on serve-and-volley.All sports go through trends. As the games change, different approaches fall in and out of vogue. The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl last year on the strength of the RPO — run/pass option — in which backup quarterback Nick Foles had the option of handing off or passing. But the play wasn’t new. The option has been around in college football since the 1960s. But it’s taken a backseat as more teams have gone to pro-style offenses.This happens all the time in sports: What’s old becomes new again. Tennis is no different. Strategies experience revivals.Women in tennis have been relegating themselves mostly to the baseline. But perhaps Williams’s use of the serve-and-volley Thursday will spark a new trend. read more

  • Telefónica is to take its slate of Spanish origina

    first_imgTelefónica is to take its slate of Spanish originals to the Latin American market with the launch of the Movistar Series channel in 12 Latin American countries.Movistar Series will offer Telefónica’s 12 original series and a selection of Latin American productions through the group’s Movistar TV and Movistar Play platforms.The new channel will be available in Chile, Colombia, and Peru on February 15, and will be added to the Movistar offer in Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, and Uruguay in the next few months, according to the telco.In addition to the Movistar+ original series, the channel will broadcast Spanish-language content produced by third parties, successful Latin American series in different formats, as well as movies and documentaries. Each week Movistar Series will premiere episodes of nine series and five movies, according to Telefónica.The first Movistar original to premier on the Latin American channel will be flagship period drama La Peste, followed by Felix, Matar al Padre, Gigantes, Arde Madrid and anime title Virtual Hero.Movistar has invested €70 million in original production to date, including €10 million in La Peste.“As a group, Telefónica is stressing its capabilities as creator of original fiction contents and its broad multi-platform scope. The operation that is being announced today will make it possible for the Movistar series to arrive to more than 13 countries in 2018, making it possible to reach 3.8 million pay TV customers in Spain and more than three million pay TV homes in [Hispanic America]. The more than 110 million Movistar mobile clients in the region must be added to this scope, all of which would also have access to these contents”, said Movistar+ president Sergio Oslé.“We want to create benchmark television where the client has the freedom to choose. We’re going to continue working on the television model that the user wants; we have the highways and the content, and the challenge is to continue to adapt to the market, and for our clients to have the best content together with a customised, multi-platform, and an on demand experience.”Michael Duncan, CEO of the Telefónica global consumer unit, said: “We will become a platform of platforms in Latin America, offering the best content in the market, but that will also have differential attributes that make our value proposal unique and distinguished by its quality. We believe that there is enormous potential for a platform of quality contents made in Spanish, and we want Movistar Series to become the benchmark channel for this content.”Reports last year suggested that Telefónica was planning to leverage its investment in original series to launch an OTT offering in other European markets including the UK and Germany, where it has existing operation.The company has previously stated its ambition to be the biggest producer of original TV content in Spanish globally.last_img read more

  • Ikea 5 Serving Bowl Is a Fire Risk

    first_img Add to Queue The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue. 2019 Entrepreneur 360 List Senior Editor Apply Now » This story originally appeared on PCMag June 28, 2017 Putting objects that are flammable in a shiny metal bowl out in the sun results in an inevitable bowl of fire. –sharescenter_img Ikea $5 Serving Bowl Is a Fire Risk IKEA 2 min read Ikea offers a wide range of very affordable objects with which to fill your home. For the most part they are very safe, well thought out products, but the $5 Blanda blank bowl isn’t one of them. It’s actually turning out to be a fire risk.The Blanda blank is offered as an 8-inch serving bowl for $4.99, although there’s also a smaller 5-inch and larger 11-inch and 14-inch versions for $3.99, $6.99 and $14.99 respectively. In all cases this serving bowl is stainless steel and perfect for filling with salad or fruit.Owners of the bowl are discovering it’s a bit risky using it outside on a sunny day, though. That’s because the reflective stainless steel finish combined with the energy of the sun is turning it into a fire pit. Just like when you focus the sun through a magnifying glass, anything placed inside the Blanda blank serving bowl can get roasting hot and set on fire.According to Atlas Obscura, Ikea is currently carrying out its own testing on the bowl. It seems unlikely a fix is possible for the existing design. Ikea may end up changing the stainless steel finish so as to be less reflective.If you own a Blanda blank serving bowl, consider this a warning. It doesn’t react well to direct sunlight, but can easily be fixed by adding a little shade or by filling it with food that blocks the reflective nature of the interior.

  • NCMEC Launches GeoTargeted Digital Out of Home Campaign to Help Find Missing

    first_imgAs Part of the Cross-Industry Initiative Created by M/H VCCP, the out of Home (OOH) Advertising Industry Has Donated AD Space Valued at More Than $3 Million to Feature Regionally Targeted Photos of Missing Children Across the US National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and advertising agency M/H VCCP have launched Runaway Train 25, a cross-industry initiative to reinvent the search for missing children in the US As part of the initiative more than 450 digital billboards and transit screens will support the campaign ahead of National Missing Children’s Day on Saturday May 25, 2019.Organized by the Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA), and produced by Grand Visual, the campaign aims to harness the public’s help to join the search by publishing the names and photos of missing children and raising awareness of the number to call for sightings; 1-800-THE-LOST.  The digital OOH activation spans 14 media vendors and runs across rail, roadside, and high street locations in over 40 U.S states, including major cities NYC, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, and Philadelphia.The campaign is delivered through OpenLoop, the dynamic creative optimization server from QDOT. OpenLoop takes the data feed from NCMEC and publishes each missing child case in a geo-targeted push to digital billboards in and around the region the child went missing. “It’s about using clever ad tech to reach a broadcast level audience, whilst delivering tactical and relevant information at a community level,” said Grand Visual’s COO, Ben Putland.Marketing Technology News: Jumpshot Releases State of eCommerce Data Report that Reveals New Retail Strategies for Sponsored Search, Affiliate Marketing and InfluencersThe digital billboards also promote Runaway Train 25, a new music video, released today, as part of the broader initiative, which reinterprets the 1990’s award-winning Soul Asylum song “Runaway Train” with musical artists Jaime N Commons and Skylar Gray feat. Gallant. Directed by RSA Films’ Emmy award winner Jake Scott, the music video uses geo-targeting technology to change the missing children featured based on where the video is viewed.Both the DOOH creative and the music video encourage people to visit runawaytrain25.com and share the video across their social channels to help publicize #MissingKids and #RunAwayTrain25 through their personal networks.“Last year NCMEC assisted with over 25,000 cases of missing children, the vast majority were runaways,” said NCMEC President and CEO John Clark. “Thanks to the outdoor advertising community and all of our amazing partners, this highly targeted campaign gives us visibility in transit locations across the U.S.  Campaigns like this can play a vital part in the search and the ability to run multiple cases that are geo-targeted across more than 40 states will be a true game changer.”Marketing Technology News: WireWheel and Virtru Partner to Protect Integrity and Privacy of Personal Data“We know that it only takes one person to find a missing child. This powerful campaign is a great example of OOH, online, and social media working together to ensure photos of missing children are distributed as widely as possible,” said OAAA President and CEO Nancy Fletcher. “It’s about driving awareness and spurring action; everyone has the ability to make a difference in their communities.”“There is nothing more powerful than when a community comes together to solve a problem. We conceived of Runaway Train 25 to bring art and technology together in a way that resonates with communities across the country so that NCMEC can bring home more kids than ever before.” John Matejczyk, founder and Chief Creative Officer, M/H VCCP.Marketing Technology News: Phishing of SaaS and Webmail Brands Surpasses Phishing Attacks on Payment Brands for the First Time NCMEC Launches Geo-Targeted Digital Out of Home Campaign to Help Find Missing Children MTS Staff WriterMay 23, 2019, 7:16 pmMay 23, 2019 advertising agency M/H VCCPMarketing TechnologyNational Missing Children’s DayNCMECNewsOAAAOpenLoop Previous ArticleTiVo Integrates Demographic Attributes, Ad Airings, and Mobile Devices into TV Viewership Data Product, Helping Connect the Media and Advertising Industries to ViewersNext ArticleSmaato and Liftoff Reveal the Most Engaging In-App Ad Formatslast_img read more
