  • Softball Set For Busy Week of Games In Oklahoma

    first_img The Drake University softball team is set to play six games in four days in Oklahoma as it closes out its non-conference tournament schedule. The Bulldogs travel to Tulsa, Okla. for a Thursday night matchup against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane at 5 p.m. before participating in the Hall of Fame Classic, which will take place in Oklahoma City, Okla., March 9-11.

Drake closes out the tournament Sunday versus Purdue at 12:30 p.m. Freshman Macy Johnson (Winterset, Iowa) continues to impress in her freshman campaign hitting .500 (6-for-12) over the weekend. Johnson, who is batting a team-best .410 on the season, scored or batted in seven of Drake’s 16 runs in the tournament. Last weekend, the Bulldogs went 2-3 at the Mizzou Tournament, dropping a pair of games to Missouri while splitting with Creighton. Drake also picked up a 7-2 victory over Southeastern Louisiana. Story Links Despite recording her first loss of the season against Missouri, Nicole Newman (Madison, Wis.) pitched seven innings in the 2-1 victory over Creighton. Newman (6-1) allowed just one run on three hits with 10 strikeouts against the Bluejays. The Bulldogs are one of only seven schools nationally to have two pitchers ranked in the top 50 nationally for earned run average. Newman and Kailee Smith (Murrieta, Calif.) hold 1.00 and 1.05 ERAs, respectively, this season. Following the Hall of Fame Classic, Drake opens Missouri Valley Conference play with a three-game series at Evansville, March 17-18.   Print Friendly Version Connecticut (7-12) will look to rebound in Oklahoma City following an 0-6 performance at the I-75 Challenge with losses to Georgia State (2), Georgia Tech (2) and Kennesaw State.

  • Staff objections blocking full abortion services at LUH

    first_imgLetterkenny University Hospital has been prevented from providing abortion services due to conscientious objections from staff.Early-pregnancy abortion was legalised in Ireland on 1st January 2019, but as of May, Letterkenny University Hospital had not yet provided full termination of pregnancy services.Department of Health documents obtained by TheJournal.ie showed that conscientious objection is a “significant challenge” at LUH. Abortion was made legal in Ireland following the repeal of the eighth amendment in 2018. The majority of abortions are carried out through GP surgeries, but women who are more than 9 weeks pregnant or require surgical terminations are referred to a hospital. All hospitals provide terminations in emergency situations, when a woman’s life or health is at risk.TheJournal.ie reveals that Sligo University Hospital also had issues with conscientious objections.Read more at: https://www.thejournal.ie/conscientious-objection-abortion-hospital-4725826-Jul2019/  Staff objections blocking full abortion services at LUH was last modified: July 16th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Letterkenny University Hospitallast_img read more

  • Warriors must strike challenging balance in final 25 games

    first_imgOAKLAND — Despite the drama, despite the injuries, and despite big-time changes to the roster, the Warriors are exactly where everyone presumed they would be as the NBA enters its homestretch this week: they sit in first place in the Western Conference as the overwhelming favorites to win a third-straight NBA title.The first 57 games of the Warriors regular season were anything but ho-hum. The final 25 should — in theory — be smoother.That’s not to say that there won’t be challenges, though. …last_img read more

  • SA’s fashion now online

    first_img30 July 2007A forward thinking company has launched a website that provides both established and up-and-coming fashion designers a platform to showcase their clothing and accessories in a virtual shop, the first of its kind in South Africa.With limited access to fashion shows and soaring rentals being a stumbling block for most young designers, Adam & Eve gives them a possible solution to their problems.“Apart from being an excellent place to shop, www.adamandeve.co.za is giving the rising fashion stars of South Africa a head start”, says Adam & Eve director Frankie Fleck in a statement on Wednesday.The company states that by having an online presence, South African brands will also be available to customers both locally and worldwide.While living in the UK, Fleck first came up for the idea of an online shopping portal in South Africa, which would give users who are either too busy to shop or living in remote parts of the country access to fashion.“I believe that our virtual shop could be a springboard for a lot of the rising talent we have here in South Africa within the fashion industry and by giving these designers the opportunity to share an online portal with the likes of Levis, Puma, Rosenwerth, Kluk CGCT, Black Coffee and Maya Prass, they are certainly going to benefit”, Fleck states.Other notable South African brands available through the website include Spilhaus (Swarovski), Black Coffee, Stiaan Louw, Chica-Loca and Mandy G.The company states that while many South Africans have been reluctant to spend money online in the past, increased security measures and more rigorous credit card procedures have created a newfound confidence in local online shoppers.“Together with the convenience of desktop shopping, sizing guides and an easy returns policy, this already booming business is set to dramatically alter the way fashion is displayed and sold,” Adam & Eve states.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

  • More Sources Claim Chinese Government Involvement in Cyberattacks on Google, Others

    first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… More sources are now claiming the Chinese government is behind the recent cyberattacks against Google and 33 other Silicon Valley companies, reports security firm Verisign iDefense. The attacks, revealed yesterday via a posting on Google’s official blog, were hacking attempts on the technology infrastructure of Google and other major corporations in sectors that included finance, technology, media and chemical, said Dave Girouard, president of Google Enterprise.Although Google’s politely-worded blog post doesn’t come out and directly blame the Chinese government for these attacks, many have suspected that is the case, including, apparently, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Now even more sources are coming out to confirm the Chinese government’s involvement. According to Verisign, their sources within the defense-contracting and intelligence-consulting communities also believe “agents of the Chinese state or proxies thereof” are to blame for these recent attacks. About the AttacksGoogle has stated that the attackers unsuccessfully attempted to access the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists. However, only two Gmail accounts were accessed and only account information and the email subject lines were seen, not the content of the emails themselves. The company also said that at least 20 other large companies were attacked as well. Now Verisign reports that number is 33. In light of these attacks, Google boldly declared they are reconsidering their decision to do business in China – a surprising turn for the Internet giant who once claimed that operating in China didn’t violate the company’s motto, “Don’t be evil,” despite the fact that it required censoring search results according to the Chinese government’s wishes. That controversial act, though hotly debated at the time, was not all that surprising. Many Western firms ultimately have to cave in to Chinese demands in order to gain access to the 300 million plus Internet users the country holds. Google, for all their proclaimed high ideals, appeared to be no exception. Until now. The company has changed its course, stating that they will no longer censor the search results for their Chinese portal google.cn, launched in 2006 with the lofty goal of providing reliable access to information, albeit filtered information, for millions of Chinese citizens. Google is leaving the next move up to the Chinese government. If officials do not accept Google’s decision to provide unfiltered information, Google says they will have to withdraw from the country. Policy Change Hints at Government Involvement in Attacks So what has changed between then and now? The Chinese government hasn’t altered their position on Internet censorship, nor have they asked Google to make any changes to the agreement already in place. Many immediately suspected that the sole reason for Google’s decision has to do with the attacks themselves – attacks that hint at government involvement. According to Verisign’s sources, that does appear to be the case. The company says they’ve confirmed with two independent sources that both the source IPs and drop server (the server used to host malicious code and store the stolen files) of the attack correspond to a single foreign entity consisting of either agents of the Chinese state or those acting on their behalf.Verisign also notes that these recent attacks resemble a similar July 2009 incident against 100 or so IT-focused companies. At that time, the hacks involved an emailed PDF file that contained an unpatched Adobe Reader vulnerability, which allowed the attackers to deliver the malicious code. That vulnerability remained unpatched until just yesterday, notes Rick Howard, director of security intelligence for VeriSign iDefense. While July’s attacks were detected early and were largely uneventful, December’s attacks did find some success. In addition, these same sources claim that the files in both cases share similar characteristics. For example, both attacks used a backdoor Trojan in the form of a Windows DLL, and both share two similar hosts for the command-and-control (C&C) communication. In layman’s terms, if the cyberattack was a ground assault during a war, the C&C would be the general barking out the orders. Also in both incidents, the IP addresses used for C&C are in the same subnet and only six addresses apart from each other. That means both attacks are likely to have been instigated by the same entity and may imply that the recent victims’ technology infrastructure has been compromised since July.While none of these findings are a true smoking gun pointing to the Chinese government, it is believed that China encourages their hacker community to attack foreign entities while publicly denying any involvement in such attacks. That may be the case now. Or it could be that this time, the attacks are not just being state-permitted, they’re being state-directed. UPDATE: iDefense has now issued the following retraction:“In iDefense’s press announcement regarding the recently discovered Silicon Valley compromises, we stated that the attack vector was likely “malicious PDF file attachments delivered via email” and suggested that a vulnerability in Adobe Reader appeared to have been exploited in these attacks. Upon further review, we are retracting our initial assessment regarding the likely use of Adobe vulnerabilities. There are currently no confirmed instances of a vulnerability in Adobe technologies being used in these attacks. We continue to investigate this issue.” A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts sarah perezcenter_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Google#news#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

  • 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

  • Things That Won’t Get You Paid

    first_imgPossessing a Bad Attitude: Nothing repels money from you like a bad attitude. Negativity, cynicism, scarcity will all keep you from earning the money you want. A bad attitude will even prevent you from making money if you are smart and skilled. There are plenty of smart people with a bad attitude that never earn what they are capable of earning.Not Growing Personally and Professionally: It’s easy to stagnate. Comfort is your enemy. Discomfort is your ally. David Allen says, “The better you get, the better you better get.” You are capable of far more than you believe. Because you are your own greatest asset, the best investment you will ever make is the investment you make in yourself. You are being paid what you’re worth. Grow into the money you want.Doing the Bare Minimum and Poor Quality Work: The surest way to leave financial opportunity and earning on the table is to do the bare minimum. Poor quality work produces poor financial rewards (penalties, really). Money follows value. The more value you create, the more money you make. Good doesn’t pay. You get paid for being exceptional, for creating outsized value.Complaining: The time you spend complaining, griping, and standing around the water cooler with people who are unengaged and lack vision will prevent you from pecuniary advantages. The Founding Fathers, whose faces are captured on our money, hated whining and bellyaching. They were attracted to resourceful people who took initiate and solved problems.Avoiding Responsibility: Want to be paid more? Then be responsible for bigger and more strategic outcomes. You don’t get paid for doing nothing noteworthy. You don’t make money for producing nothing worthwhile. The reason earners earn is because they own bigger outcomes. If someone has to tell you what to do, you’re avoiding Benjamins.An Inability to Listen: Your ability to make money is directly proportional to your ability to listen. And your ability to communicate your ideas and your vision clearly. If you can’t listen, you can’t hear opportunities. It also betrays a self-orientation that makes it difficult to for people to believe that you care about them.Low Empathy: The less you care about other people, the less you understand what other people feel, the less you make. If you aren’t interested in other people’s feelings, you aren’t interested in other people. We are emotional creatures with a capacity to be rational and logical, not the other way around. The greater your ability to connect, the better your earnings.Lack of Confidence: You make what you believe you’re worth. If you have doubts about your worth, money will have doubts about you. No one believes before you believe. Once you believe, what you want follows.last_img read more

  • Farmers’ delegation meets U.P. Governor
