UEFA Champions League: Arsenal Revives Hopes After Beating Bayern

By Ayoub DerrazaRabat – Arsenal and Chelsea try to keep hope alive for Champion’s League success.Arsenal revived their Champions League hopes in thrilling fashion with a crucial victory over Bayern Munich at Emirates Stadium in London.During the match’s first half, both team had chances. In the 6th minute, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil’s curled shot was narrowly stopped by the Bavarian goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. After 4 minutes, Arsenal’s Petr Cech replied to Neuer’s with a fabulous stop against Thiago Alcantara’s shot.30 minutes in, the Gunners ramped up against Bayern Munich, but Munich’s goalkeeper staunchly protected his goal.The first 5 minutes of second half passed calmly, until a near goal from Bayern Munich’s Douglas Costa, which just missed the net.Bayern dominated possession but Arsenal dug out the win that keeps their hopes alive when substitute Olivier Giroud hit home a header from close range in the 77th minute after Santi Cazorla’s free-kick.The win was secured in the dying seconds when Mesut Ozil scored off Hector Bellerin’s cross.Arsenal managed to break the power of the Bavarian giant who won all domestic and European points this season, and revived their hopes to pass the first stage of UEFA Champions League.On the other hand, English premier league’s champion Chelsea showed a shaky performance.The Blues failed to score a goal against Dynamo Kiev- even though they hit the woodwork twice- and returned to London with just one league point.Chelsea is currently third in their group with 4 points, behind Porto with 7 points, and Dynamo Kiev with 5 points. read more

Carbon credit scheme could propel action on climate change – UN

10 September 2009A United Nations-backed gathering on how to scale up a carbon credit system wrapped up today, with participants agreeing that the mechanism can help contribute to a successful outcome at this December’s climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, which aims to conclude an ambitious new pact to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Over 200 participants from 20 countries gathered in Kiev, Ukraine, for a two-day gathering to discuss how to improve the Joint Implementation scheme which is part of the Kyoto Protocol, an international agreement which sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European community for reducing emissions.Under the Joint Implementation programme, countries can earn emission reduction units (ERUs) – each equivalent to one tonne of carbon dioxide – to meet part of their obligations under the Protocol.“The international consensus is clear: climate change is a global threat that requires a global response,” said Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the parent treaty of the Kyoto Protocol, noting that tackling global warming requires many resources.The Joint Implementation scheme is one of “the few tools we have at our disposal, now, up and running, that can help deliver those resources,” he added.Those attending the Kiev meeting said that the initiative, along with Kyoto Protocol mechanisms such as the clean development mechanism which allows industrialized countries to generate credits through investment in emission reduction projects in developing countries, should continue following the end of the Protocol’s first commitment period in 2012. read more

Tons of mistakes doom Ohio State womens volleyball

Freshman outside hitter Kylie Randall (1) makes sure her teammates are in place during a match against Wisconsin Oct. 11 at St. John Arena. OSU lost, 3-2.Credit: Daniel Rogers / Asst. sports editorThe Ohio State’s women’s volleyball team continued to struggle over the weekend against Big Ten opponents.The No. 14 Buckeyes fell to 2-4 in conference play after dropping their match against No. 11 Minnesota in three sets (25-16, 25-17, 25-19) Saturday.Leading the way for the Buckeyes was senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary, who finished with 10 kills, but it was not enough to overcome the Golden Gophers, who finished the match with a .337 attacking percentage.“We made a ton of mistakes and they didn’t and we knew that,” said coach Geoff Carlston. “We told the team that was going to be their game style.”Leary said it is time for the Buckeyes to forget about their losses and return to their non-conference form.“We just need to go back to the basics and what we worked on in the preseason when we were playing well, playing well together,” Leary said. “We’ll get back to that.”OSU started off the season 12-0 heading into conference play before beating Michigan in its Big Ten opener. Since then the Buckeyes have lost four of five, but Leary said the team can still learn from its recent struggles.“Every Big Ten game is a battle,” Leary said. “I mean, we’ve learned form every single game we’ve played so far so we’ll take a lot from this, get better this week and be ready for next weekend.”Carlston said his team has to re-evaluate where they are as a group.“We’re trying to find our identity a little bit,” he said. “That consistency is just not there right now.”Junior setter Taylor Sherwin said the Buckeyes recognize they can play better, even coming off of the loss to Minnesota.“It’s very frustrating just cause we know we’re all better than that,” she said.Carlston added that the Big Ten, which currently features eight teams ranked in the Top 25, can force players to regroup on the fly.“(The Big Ten) forces you to kind of look at yourself in the mirror because you just don’t have any easy matches. There’s no break,” Carlston said.The loss to Minnesota came a day after the Buckeyes fell in five sets to No. 19 Wisconsin (20-25, 26-24, 23-25, 25-21, 15-10).Sherwin said the match was tough to handle because the Buckeyes were in a position to win.“There was disappointment because that was a match we were in the whole time,” she said. “But I think those matches, we just need to thrive (off) and just keep working hard in practice.”Against the Badgers, Leary had 17 kills and 15 errors, while freshman middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe added 13 kills with five errors and freshman outside hitter Kylie Randall tallied 12 kills with six errors.While the offense was not at its best over the weekend, Carlston said the team has a lot of room to improve on defense.“Our defense right now is terrible, it’s not good,” Carlston said. “We can be better on that end, I think we have really good players on our team, we have to commit to getting back to where we were two weeks ago.”Carlston said his team’s conference record is not an indicator of its ability.“We’ve got to remember that we’re a pretty good team, we’ve got some talent,” he said.OSU is set to hit the road starting with a Wednesday match against Northwestern in Evanston, Ill., before taking on Illinois in Champaign, Ill., Sunday and Penn State in State College, Pa., Oct. 23. read more

The International Handball Federation announced intention to prohibit the use of resin in handball until the end of 2017. The official ball supplier of IHF, Molten, working on ball which could be easily controled even without „the most important thing for handball players“ apart of their snickers, T-shirt and ball – resin.The reason for such idea of IHF are mostly linked with handball as a „cleaner sport“:– First of all, the resin itself poses a problem. Not only that it is unhealthy for the players, a lot of venues worldwide don’t allow the use of resin, on the one hand because of the necessary cleaning of the floors, which is connected to additional expenses, and on the other hand because resin destroys the floors. Furthermore, the colours of the ball, which is always specifically designed for each championship to match the colours of the respective host nation, are not visible anymore after several minutes during a match as the ball is covered with resin. In addition, some parents do not permit their children to play handball because of the resin – wrote in statement from IHF office.However, the opponents and skeptics of resin-free handball think that decision could make a lot of problems to some players to show their technical mastery and reduce the number of their shooting solutions what is crucial thing for the fans and attractivity or our sport.What do you think?

Cyprus holds presidential election following heated campaign

first_imgCYPRIOTS HAVE BEEN voting today to choose a new president after a heated election campaign focused on rescuing the recession-hit EU member state from bankruptcy.Nicos Anastasiades, 66, of the rightwing main opposition Disy party, is tipped to win the first round in which 550,000 Cypriots are eligible to vote, perhaps managing to cross the 50-percent threshold that would avoid a run-off a week later.He has the support of the centre-right Diko party in the race for the presidency, which unlike in previous polls on the normally affluent but divided island has focused on the economy rather than elusive efforts at reunification.Polling stations opened at 7am local time and will close at 6pm, with a result expected less than three hours later.Asked after voting in the southern town of Limassol what the stakes were in the election, Anastasiades said it was about “survival of the country and nothing else.”His closest challenger for the Greek Cypriot leadership is former health minister Stavros Malas, 45, a British-educated independent backed by the currently ruling communist AKEL party.“This is a day for the most important chapter in the history of the Cypriot people to be written,” Malas said after voting in the capital.Bailout termsAnastasiades, who led Malas by 20 percentage points in polls, is seen as someone the Europe Union can do business with, while his stance on ending the division of Cyprus is more flexible than his rivals.The most pressing task facing the next president as he starts a five-year term will be to agree terms with a troika of lenders on a bailout to save the island’s Greek-exposed banks and failing economy.The European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund are awaiting the election result before offering the terms for a 17-billion-euro ($23-billion) lifeline.Malas, who is confident of seeing off the challenge of 52-year-old former foreign minister George Lillikas and reaching a second round vote next Sunday, argues for “softer” austerity measures.President Demetris Christofias sought a bailout in June, and talks dragged on as the outgoing leader, who is not standing for re-election, resisted measures including privatisation and reopened talks with Russia on topping up a 2.5-billion-euro loan.On the political front, the international community will also expect the next Cypriot president to pick up the pieces of a deadlocked UN push for peace.Anastasiades supported a failed “Yes” vote for a UN reunification blueprint in 2004, even though it was rejected by Greek Cypriots, resulting in a divided island joining the EU.Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and seized its northern third in response to an Athens-inspired coup aimed at uniting the island and Greece.Lillikas is the only one of the three main candidates who rejects a bailout, saying it would plunge the tourist destination into spiralling recession. Instead, he wants to sell untapped offshore gas reserves in advance.“Together we can restore hope to our country and bring economic development, together we can build a new path for a Cyprus solution with dignity,” he said on Sunday.The independent has a tough stance on Turkey’s EU accession, saying it should be vetoed unless the Cyprus issue is resolved.There are 11 candidates standing altogether, including two women.- © AFP 2013.last_img read more

Sullivan backs Trump on China import taxes

first_imgU.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan talks to reporters after his annual address to the Alaska Legislature in 2016. (File photo by Skip Gray/360 North)On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan praised President Trump’s trade strategy toward China as a “positive and needed course correction.”Listen nowIn an emailed press release, Sullivan said China has been stealing intellectual property and subsidizing state-owned businesses for decades. Sullivan says the situation calls for reciprocity.The Trump administration this week announced a 25 percent import tax on hundreds of Chinese products, such as electronics, medicine and batteries. Hours later, China announced a tax hike on a list of American goods, including soybeans, cars and airplanes. In some good news for Alaska, American seafood is not on China’s tariff list.Both of Alaska’s U.S. senators were critical last month when Trump announced a new tariff on steel and aluminum from China and other countries. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said it would add to the cost of a natural gas pipeline from the North Slope. Sullivan signed a letter last month saying the metal tariffs could drive away U.S. allies.last_img read more

Sensex Nifty extend losing streak TVS Motor plunges 10 after Q4 results

first_imgIndian stock markets extended their losses for the second consecutive day on Tuesday tracking global cues, mainly China’s weak manufacturing data for April. The S&P BSE Sensex shed 207 points, or 0.81 percent, to close at 25,230, while the NSE Nifty ended 59 points lower at 7,747.Shares of Chennai-based TVS Motor Company closed with a loss of 9.66 percent at Rs. 287.90 on the BSE, after recovering from the day’s low of Rs. 279.30. The company reported operating margin (EBITDA) of 6.7 percent, missing consensus estimate of 7 percent for the fourth quarter.”Margins are below expectations considering lower raw material prices should have benefitted TVS Motor,” NDTVProfit quoted Shahina Mukadam, independent market analyst, as saying.”EBITDA margin came below estimates at 6.3 per cent, down 30 basis points year-on-year and 80 basis points quarter-on-quarter. Gross margin was down 140 basis points QoQ… The stock is trading at steep valuations building in recovery in volumes/export growth and margin revival,” Mihir Jhaveri of Religare Capital Markets, said. TVS Motor Company reported net profit of Rs. 118 crore, while sales stood at Rs. 2,815 crore in the March 2016 quarter. Coal India was the biggest Sensex loser on news that the state-run miner’s workers are upset that the company’s modernisation drive would lead to job losses. Other Sensex losers included BHEL, ICICI Bank and Lupin. Stocks that lifted the benchmark index included Bharti Airtel, Asian Paints, Adani Ports and HDFC.While most of the sectoral indices ended the day with losses, BSE Realty gained 0.32 percent. On the NSE also, realty was the exception while almost all other sectoral indices ended in the red.Rupee shed gainsThe Indian rupee, after opening at 66.34, rallied up to 66.23 against the US dollar, but later lost to close at 66.42 to the dollar.

Watch Jimmy Fallon Play Super Mario on iPhone

first_img Jan. 12 can’t come soon enough for fresh details about the Nintendo Switch, but last night we got to see the Switch in action live on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.Nintendo is starting to get serious about a marketing push for its next console launch. And just before we all settle down to play on an Xbox One S or PS4 Pro this Christmas, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé and legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto turned up on TV, complete with what looked to be a fully functioning Switch.The showcase starts off with Super Mario Run for smartphones, but that’s really just a lead in to unveiling the Switch hardware, which Fallon seems genuinely excited about. The fact that it’s running The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild should come as no surprise, as that’s the only Switch game we’ve been shown before beyond other games’ quick appearances in the Switch teaser trailer.The live presentation shows us nothing new in terms of gameplay, but Nintendo clearly wanted the focus to be on the hardware and its dual functionality as a handheld and a home console.Unfortunately, the actual transition from playing on the big screen to the tablet is covered up. What happens when you lift the Switch out of its dock during play? What exactly did Reggie see on the tablet and press to allow the game to be playable again for Fallon?Maybe that transition state and experience isn’t finalized yet, but it needs to be for the January presentation. Every aspect of the Switch experience will be scrutinized at that point and used by the media to either get behind the Switch, or treat it with some degree of suspicion until review units are sent out.

Email archiving software MailStore Home 101 is out

first_imgEmail archiving software MailStore Home 10.1 is out by Martin Brinkmann on March 30, 2017 in Email – 3 commentsMailStore Home 10.1 is the latest version of the popular email archiving and backup software for Microsoft Windows devices.The new version of the program features search improvements, and some other changes that are useful to users of the program.Existing users may run a check for updates from within the application. A click on the check for updates button on the application’s dashboard runs an update check. The new MailStore Home 10.1 should pop up then automatically as a new version, and an option to download and install it should be displayed as well.You may download the new version from the official company website as well to install it on a new machine, or run the installer to update an existing version of it.Tip: A guide that explains how to use MailStore to backup email.MailStore Home 10.1Search has been improved considerably in MailStore Home 10.1. As you may know, you can run searches across all archived emails at once regardless of email address those messages are associated with. You can run one-time searches, but also save searches to re-run them again at a later point in time (and take into account new messages archived in between).One of the new capabilities allows you to run searches only in the body of the email, or in attachments. These options are available when you open search in the MailStore Home application.This allows you to search only the message body for instance, or only the content of attachments. You may combine the search options though, for instance to find matching text in the subject or message body, but not the sender or recipient field.Search improvements don’t stop there however. Another improvement are new search modifiers. The following modifiers are available now under general on the same page:Find older or newer than (range).Find older or newer than (date).Not older or newer than (range).Not older or newer than (date).The difference between date and range is that date sets a fixed date for the advanced search parameter, e.g. not older than February 3rd, 2017, while range a time period, e.g. not older than 55 days.Another search related change is the lifting of the 10,000 tokens per object search index restriction.Last but not least, you may start an advanced search quickly from the right-click context menu of a selected folder.IMAPMailStore Home’s IMAP handling was improved in the new version of the program as well. The developers added auto-detect functionality to MailStore Home 10.1 to detect Sent Items folders automatically.Another IMAP related change is that IMAP-TLS is the default for new profiles starting with this version. POP3-TLS is the default for new POP3 accounts as well.Other changes and fixesA couple of smaller fixes and improvements landed in the new version as well. You may notice that the installation path — if you use the setup version of MailStore — of new installations is now set to Mailstore instead of the former name deepinvent.The developers added a workaround for emails with incorrect character encoding identifiers in the new version which should improve the handling of these emails.Closing WordsMailStore Home 10.1 gets better with every release. The program is completely free of charge for personal use, and mighty when it comes to support for various email mailboxes, desktop programs, and online services.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 2 votes Software Name Mailstore Home Operating System WindowsSoftware Category EmailLanding Page http://www.mailstore.com/en/mailstore-home-email-archiving.aspx Advertisementlast_img read more

Your Facebook Posts Can Reveal If Youre Depressed

first_imgTo study whether language on Facebook could predict a depression diagnosis, Eichstaedt and his colleagues needed access to two personal forms of data: Social media accounts and electronic medical records. Over the course of 26 months, they approached more than 11,000 patients in a Philadelphia emergency department and asked if they’d be willing to share their EMRs and up to seven years’ worth of Facebook status updates.Some 1,200 patients agreed. Of those, 114 had medical records indicating a depression diagnosis. Every year, roughly one in six Americans suffers from depression. To reproduce that ratio in their final research population, the researchers matched every person with a depression diagnosis with five who did not. That gave the researchers a final pool of 684 participants. Using those individuals’ more-than-half-a-million Facebook status updates, the researchers determined the most frequently used words and phrases and developed an algorithm to spot what they call depression-associated language markers. Facebook’s 2.2-billion active users use the platform for sharing all kinds of things: Engagements. Group plans. Political misinformation. Cat photos. But as researchers reported this week, the words you post in your status updates could also contain hidden information about your mental health.In research described in this week’s issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists analyzed language from study participants’ Facebook status updates to predict future diagnoses of depression. The researchers say their technique could lead to a screening tool that identifies people in need of mental health support and formal diagnosis, while raising serious questions about health privacy.If this line of inquiry sounds familiar, you’re not imagining things: Scientists have been studying the association between Facebook and the mental state of its users for years—often without the consent of the people being examined. Earlier this decade, scientists at Facebook and Cornell conducted an infamous emotional contagion study, which targeted the moods and relationships of more than half a million Facebook users without their knowledge. More recently, Cambridge Analytica used ill-gotten data from some 87 million Facebook users to develop personality profiles it claimed would enable marketers and political campaigns to deliver more effective advertisements.But many scientists continue to use above-board research methods to access Facebook’s data. For instance: By asking study participants to provide their consent, log into their accounts, and share their data—all in person—to provide one-time access to said data. The overhead is tremendous; it can take years to amass a large enough sample population using in-person study recruitment. Yet the effort can be worth it to social science researchers, many of whom regard Facebook’s trove of user information as the most significant data repository in the history of their field. They found that people with depression used more “I” language (i.e. first-person singular pronouns) and words reflecting hostility and loneliness in the months preceding their clinical diagnosis. By training their algorithm to identify these language patterns, the researchers were able to predict future depression diagnoses as much as three months before its appearance in their medical records as a formal condition.The researchers’ observation that depressive individuals use “I” language more often jibes with findings from past studies, including ones that have related social media usage patterns to self-reported depression. But this is the first study to compare the language people use on Facebook to clinical diagnoses using medical record data. “That’s an important advance,” says Matthias Mehl, a research psychologist at the University of Arizona who studies how language usage can reflect a person’s psychological condition, “but the predictions are still far from perfect.” The algorithm’s probability of detecting symptoms of true depression, he says, was higher than the probability of false alarm—but nowhere near enough for it to replace a formal diagnosis.Eichstaedt agrees. “It would be irresponsible to take this tool and use it to say: You’re depressed, you’re not depressed,” he says. What it could be suitable for is finding people who should follow up with more formal—and often more costly—screening methods. He adds that future studies will need to reproduce his team’s findings in larger, more diverse populations (the participants in this study were predominantly black women).That’s assuming people will be willing to have the language they use on social media dissected in search of mental health signatures—one hell of an assumption, in light of Facebook’s ongoing string of privacy scandals. And even if people do consent to share their personal information, Eichstaedt says you can’t unlock its true predictive power until you combine it with another form of data: heart rate, activity, or sleep patterns, for example—all of which are recorded more and more by activity trackers.“A benevolent dictator would connect all these data streams and use them for the public good,” Eichstaedt says. But the moral and ethical alignments of tech’s biggest companies face greater scrutiny today than at any point in recent history. If a screening tool like this one ever debuts on Facebook or any other social media platform, it’s hard to envision it happening anytime soon. “We’re increasingly understanding that what people do online is a form of behavior we can read with machine learning algorithms, the same way we can read any other kind of data in the world,” says University of Pennsylvania psychologist Johannes Eichstaedt, first author of the new PNAS study and cofounder of the World Well-Being Project, a research organization investigating how the words people use on social media reflects their psychological state.

The company added that it is also notifying the relevant food agencies, has stopped production in its Baja facility while it conducts an in-depth review of the production lines, and is looking into alternative sourcing possibilities to supply its customers.”Currently, Greenyard is not yet in a position to estimate the financial impact of this recall initiative and will inform the market at a later stage when more information is available.

The Mexican avocado industry has got fully back to

first_imgThe Mexican avocado industry has got fully back to its export rhythm since the October strike, with volumes shipped to the U.S. this season up 13% at 371,411 metric tons (MT).A dispute between growers and packers in Michoacan severely affected exports for a couple of weeks in October.But the volume surge over the last couple of months has slowed fruit movement and lowered prices to US$25-27 per 25-pound box in the final stages of the year – compared to the US$30-35 range they were at the same time last year.“They are lower than the previous years, mainly due to the higher harvest volume that we have and because it was hard to start the market again [after the strike],” said Ramón Paz, spokesperson for the Mexican avocado association (APEAM).Mexico is currently in the middle of its season, which runs from July to June, with exports levels close to normal.“We are once again in 20,000 MT, or slightly up on 20,000MT per week. We are getting retailers’ trust back, and are doing some promotions as well,” he said.“We have a big harvest and we hope to sustain this shipment level until the end of our season, maintaining the big volumes until July.”Paz said that one of the challenges related to the strike was that the industry had to use all the pre-ripened fruit in October.“The inventories of pre-ripened fruit … were emptied. Then when we shipped again, a lot of the fruit that arrived at the supermarkets green instead of ripe … and that makes the rotation of the inventories and the sales slower,” he said.Despite that, he says the campaign is going well, with exports estimates quite similar to the ones at the beginning of the season. The organization does a projection review three times a year, with the latest estimate stating that there was going to be a 2% increase in the shipments to de U.S., reaching 900,000 MT.

UN chief want to listen to leaders not impose way forward

first_imgThe dinner hosted by UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres for President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci will be held at the UN headquarters in New York at 7pm Sunday (2am Cyprus time), it was announced on Friday.An unnamed UN official cited by the Cyprus News Agency said the meeting will take place in Guterres’ 38th-floor office, and its goal is “to discuss the Cyprus-problem talks and the way forward”.In addition to the three men, in the room will be UN special adviser Espen Barth Eide and one minute-keeper from each side – in all likelihood the two chief negotiators Andreas Mavroyiannis and Ozdil Nami.According to the official, a photo-op will precede the dinner, and the UN team is preparing for the possibility for remarks at the end of the dinner.A diplomatic source said the secretary-general’s intention is not to impose the way forward on the two leaders but to listen to their views, with regard to both where things stand and, crucially, the next steps.Anastasiades is expected to arrive in New York late on Saturday night, and will depart for Washington on Monday morning.Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said on Thursday that Anastasiades’ speaking commitment on Monday at a convention of the American-Jewish Committee, before a crowd of 2.500, was “arranged two years ago”.The Cyprus peace talks have come perilously close to a complete breakdown after days of Eide-facilitated haggling over the agenda of a second conference on Cyprus in Geneva, envisioned as the final decisive step for a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.The talks stumbled at a leaders’ meeting in Nicosia on May 17, when both leaders agreed to the need for a resumption of the Geneva conference but Anastasiades proposed that security, guarantees, and territory be tackled first, in isolation, before the open-ended conference touches on other issues for as long as it takes.This was rejected by Akinci, who countered that the agreement has always been that all issues are discussed interdependently.Last Friday, Eide officially announced ending his efforts to facilitate agreement between the two sides over the issue and said he would consult with Guterres on the way forward.On Wednesday, Guterres invited the two leaders to a dinner on Sunday that is hoped to produce agreement on the resumption of the Geneva conference on Cyprus.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
