Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo has criticised the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) process after his team had a goal chalked off in a 0-0 draw at Leicester City in their Premier League opener on Sunday.Belgian midfielder Leander Dendoncker found the back of the net in the 53rd minute, but the strike was ruled out after VAR intervention, with the technology showing the ball had struck Wily Boly’s arm in the build-up.When asked about VAR after the match, Espirito Santo didn’t dispute the decision, but made it clear he was worried about the process affecting the game – in particular a change in fan behaviour with the Foxes fans celebrating the call against Dendoncker.

What can we do? [The VAR] has a TV and they can stop the image,” Espirito Santo said to Sky Sports in a post-match interview.”But what I’m concerned about is let’s not ruin the game. Things that weren’t before should not be now.”We have such a nice Premier League product, we cannot lose it. It’s what fans come here for – not to celebrate when [there] is no goal. That is not the real celebration of football. You celebrate when there is a goal. Creating these moments are not good for the atmosphere of the game.”There was one minute, 38 seconds of elapsed time between Dendoncker’s shot crossing the line and play resuming after it had been ruled out by the VAR.Espirito Santo was adamant the VAR process for Dendoncker’s effort was drawn out and reiterated the response from Leicester fans goes against what football is about.”Yeah, [the VAR process is too long],” he said.”And then after, the fans of Leicester with all my respect, they celebrate it – a non-goal. That’s not the mindset of the game.”Wolves continue their Europa League campaign in the third qualifying round against Armenia’s Pyunik on Thursday at the Molineux – having won the first leg 4-0 on the road last week.They will search for their first Premier League win of the season against Manchester United at home on August 19.

Next Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro launched: Price, India launch date, specifications and all you need to knowRedmi has unveiled the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in China. Starting from approximately Rs 20,000, the Redmi K20 offers premium features and flagship-grade specifications without asking a premium. The Redmi K20 Pro is expected to come to India very soon. Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiMay 28, 2019UPDATED: May 29, 2019 08:41 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Redmi K20 features a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and no notch.The Redmi K20 base variant comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, starts at approximately Rs 20,000.The India-bound Redmi K20 Pro starts from Rs 25,000.It has been a while since Xiaomi started teasing the Redmi K20 in India. In all those banner advertisements that Xiaomi released just after the launch of the OnePlus 7 Pro, the company promised to offer the same Snapdragon 855 chipset at a much lower price. Today, Redmi, which is Xiaom’s sub-brand in China, officially launched the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. And based on the prices alone, Xiaomi seems to have got itself a winner on its hand, especially when compared to other Snapdragon 855 powered smartphones.However, price is just a part of the story and Xiaomi knowns that very well. Hence, the Redmi K20 series is as lavishly equipped as any other premium smartphone in 2019. At the launch event, Xiaomi focused a lot on the design aspect instead of solely speaking about the chipset and performance. Therefore, compared to last year’s affordable flagship offering – the Poco F1, the Redmi K20 series packs a lot more than just specifications. The focus seems to be on delivering an overall premium experience not neglecting the performance by any means.That said, the Redmi K20 series is a phone that is aimed at the mass market. Therefore, specs still matter for the consumer in this segment and here’s a brief of all the technical specifications.Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro specifications:Display: Both the Redmi K20 phones use a 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with no notch and very slim bezels. The screen supports DC Dimming and also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.advertisementChipset: The Redmi K20 is equipped with a Snapdragon 730 chipset which is closer to the Snapdragon 835 in terms of performance. The Snapdragon 730 comes with Adreno 616 GPU. On the other hand, the Redmi K20 Pro gets the flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Snapdragon 855 is presently the most powerful chipset in the Android universe.RAM: The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro can be equipped with a choice of 6GB or 8GB RAM.Storage: The Redmi K20 can be configured with 64GB and 128GB storage. The Redmi K20 Pro also gets these tow storage variants but it gets another variant that tops out at 256GB storage.Rear camera: For the rear, Xiaomi is using a triple camera system. There’s a 48-megapixel primary camera with a Sony IMX586 sensor and F1.75 lens. The secondary 13-megapixel camera is an ultra-wide camera while the third 8-megapixel unit is a telephoto camera.Front camera: For the front, there’s a familiar 20-megapixel camera sitting on a pop-up mechanism.Battery: Both the Redmi K20 phones are equipped with a 4000mAh battery and 27W fast charging.Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro features:–The Redmi K20 comes in three colour variants – Carbon Fibre, Blue and Red. The Blue and Red variants have a unique gradient design that shimmers towards the edges. However, similar to the Google Pixel 3 phones, the Carbon Fibre and Blue variants have red power buttons (the red one also has the red button but it is concealed due to the red colour on the frame.–The Redmi K20 Pro weighs 191 grams, which is lighter than most smartphones with a pop-up camera. Xiaomi says the pop-up camera can be deployed within 0.8 seconds, which is pretty fast. –While the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset that offers top-class performance, the regular Redmi K20 relies on the Snapdragon 730 chipset. This chipset is a successor to the Snapdragon 710 and deliver performance closer to the Snapdragon 835. On AnTuTu, the Snapdragon 730 can get close 218,000 points, which means it can support all the latest games with ease.–Xiaomi knows that gamers will be excited to get this one for lots of gaming sessions and hence, has built-in Game Turbo 2.0. This is part of the software and provides lots of tools for gamers such as screenshots tools, silence notifications, RAM boost and preparing other resources for better performance. One cool feature is the Night Vision mode that enhances darker scenes in a game to the player’s advantage. — The Redmi K20 Pro gets support for 27W fast charging. Xiaomi says that it can fill up the battery from nothing in 50 minutes. This is still not as fast as Xiaomi’s 100W charging but it should be enough for most users.–For those who care, the Redmi 20 series sports a 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s also a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. The Chinese variant also gets NFC for making payments wirelessly.Redmi K20, Redmi K20 prices and availability:The Redmi K20 comes in two variants. The base variant comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, which costs 1999 Yuan (approximately Rs 20,000).

New Delhi: If caught smuggling gold at an international airport in Uttar Pradesh (Lucknow and Varanasi), the accused will now lose their passports, according to the Customs Department. The department is coordinating with the UP Passport Office for such an action to curb growing smuggling of gold at Lucknow and Varanasi international airports. The move initiated by the Customs will allow the passport office to issue show-cause notices to the alleged smuggler and later cancel passports if the reply is found unsatisfactory, top Customs officers told IANS. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoC According to the Commissioner Customs (Preventive) Lucknow, V.P. Shukla, the decision to cancel passports was taken after the department observed that most of the smugglers are turning into habitual offenders in the absence of strict legal provisions. “These accused would easily find ways to escape law. So, we took the measure to create fear in the minds of the smugglers,” Shukla told IANS. He said his department would identify the accused and based on the inputs, the UP Passport Office will issue show-cause notices. Also Read – Two squadrons which participated in Balakot airstrike awarded citations The accused would be given time to reply to the notice, and if it is not found satisfactory, the person’s passport would then be cancelled immediately. “We will identify repeat offenders or anyone who is found to be carrying more than the value of gold. The person will face action on two fronts: one in the court and another by the passport office,” said Niharika Lakhra, the customs’ Deputy Commissioner. In 2018-19 the UP customs wing recorded 46 cases of smuggling where the seizure was worth Rs 9.30 crore. In 2017-18, there were 50 such cases with seizure value of Rs 5.21 crore. The seizure during 2018-19 included around 20 kgs of gold valued at Rs 6.42 crore, foreign currencies worth Rs 1.74 crore. The customs also arrested 16 persons during 2018-19 as against 13 arrests in the year 2017-18. According to officials in UP customs the number of arrests has gone up to 22 this year.
FILE – In this May 29, 2014, file photo, visitors walk through the Hachette Book Group’s exhibition at BookExpo America, the annual industry convention in New York. Starting Wednesday, May 27, 2015, more than 20,000 industry professionals are expected at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan for BookExpo. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Diversity will get an extra push at this week’s BookCon and BookExpo America.Last year, a virtually all-white lineup of speakers at publishing’s annual national conventions highlighted the whiteness of the industry itself. BookCon’s selection of four white, male authors for a discussion of children’s books helped lead to the formation of the grassroots advocacy group We Need Diverse Books (WNDB) and the hasty assembly of the panel “The World Agrees: We Need Diverse Books.”In 2015, WNDB was helping out from the start.“They’ve heavily invested themselves in it (diversity),” Ellen Oh, a children’s author and co-founder of WNDB, said of BookExpo, the industry trade show, and BookCon, a gathering for the general public. “They’re not just paying lip service and they’re not just having one panel. And we’ll have a forum before both the general public and the industry.”Panels include “In Search of Diverse Book Buyers,” about the African-American market, and “The Diversity of Success: How Publishers Create Captivating Stories.” Oh will be moderating “WNDB Presents: Diversity, Be the Change You Want to See.”Diversity panels remain more common than actual diversity in publishing, which has few non-white agents, executives, editors or booksellers, and at publishing’s trade show. A 20-member conference advisory board for BookExpo is almost entirely white and few of the BookExpo author event hosts and breakfast speakers, among them Nathan Lane and James Patterson, are non-white. One exception will be a tea led by National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson.“We do need to step up things a little bit more,” says Woodson, whose “Brown Girl Dreaming” won the National Book Award last fall for young people’s literature. “We have readers hungry for books that reflect their lives and the industry isn’t paying attention to them.”Starting Wednesday, more than 20,000 industry professionals are expected at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan for BookExpo. At least 15,000 people whose main credentials are a love of books and a willingness to spend up to $115 for admission are coming to BookCon, which began last year as a subset of BookExpo and now has a stand-alone show at the Javits Center. The weekend gathering immediately follows BookExpo and ends Sunday.Guests at the two conventions will include a mix of writers and entertainment figures, from Woodson and Jonathan Franzen to Judy Blume and Julianne Moore. John Green, whose “Paper Towns” has been adapted into a movie coming in July, will discuss the project during BookCon. Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak will make a joint appearance at BookCon.The convention floor’s largest presence at BookExpo, covering some 23,000 square feet, will be China, this year’s featured foreign publishing industry. Not all attendees approve. PEN American Center, the literary and human rights organization, is planning two off-site events to protest China’s history of censorship and suppression of writers. One protest will feature three Chinese dissidents, the second will include such U.S. authors as Franzen and Francine Prose.“The freedom to put pen to paper and finger to keyboard is a fundamental human right,” PEN announced in a recent statement. “Any consideration of China’s burgeoning literary market must take this into account.”“China represents a significant market that is critical to this industry,” said BookExpo event director Steve Rosato. “It’s important for them to have a seat at the table and engage in a cultural and commercial exchange that could have a positive impact on the future of publishing both at home and across the globe.”Much of the convention conversation will likely focus on books in the U.S., such as Blume’s first adult novel in 17 years, “In the Unlikely Event,” which comes out in early June. In mid-July, Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman,” goes on sale. The fall will see a new novel by Franzen, “Purity,” and the year’s most anticipated debut, Garth Risk Hallberg’s 900-page “City on Fire.”A day of panels devoted to digital publishing has such forward-looking themes as “Technology, Design, and Production Track: Permissions: Navigating the Content Maze in the Electronic Space” and “Business and Marketing Track: Born Digital: New Forms of Publishing and Outreach to Readers/Participants.” But the publishing industry remains a wonder in how it sustains old ways of doing business.The digital revolution that was supposed to have prevailed by now remains stalled. Independent bookstores, supposedly on the same path to oblivion as video stores and record shops, have grown for six consecutive years. Authors and agents are unhappy with the standard e-book royalty, 25 per cent, but the once-predicted exodus to Amazon and other digital companies offering higher rates has yet to happen.“I think traditional publishing offers elements that are still essential to writers and readers,” said Roxana Robinson, president of the Authors Guild, a trade association for thousands of writers. “No one in the writing community likes the low e-book royalty rates, and I think you’ll see a concerted effort to change them. But for many writers, the advantages offered by traditional houses still outweigh the disadvantages.”“It’s not that nothing has changed,” said literary agent Eric Simonoff, noting the downfall of the Borders superstore chain and the prevalence of e-books for romance novels and other genres. “But it’s still a generally healthy business and it’s still primarily physical books. It speaks to the reports of the demise of publishing being greatly exaggerated.” by Hillel Italie, The Associated Press Posted May 26, 2015 6:05 am MDT Last Updated May 26, 2015 at 9:30 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Publishing world, reading public gather this week for BookExpo America and BookCon

Superheated housing market not withstanding Ashley Anthony says he has no plans to give up the detached three-bedroom suburban house he has lived in for the past 43 years. THE CANADIAN PRESS/J.P. Moczulski TORONTO – Superheated housing market notwithstanding, 81-year-old Ashley Anthony says he has no plans to give up the detached three-bedroom suburban house he has lived in for the past 43 years.His three kids have long since moved out, but this corner of Brampton, Ont., northwest of Toronto, is still home for Anthony and his 77-year-old wife Gladys.“Most of the people here are retired. It’s very quiet. There’s no noise and confusion here,” he reasons. “We know everybody here, we’re comfortable, so why should we move?”Anthony is far from alone. Canada’s suburbs — the bedroom communities, towns and cities that surround major urban centres like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver — are going grey far more quickly than their hustle-and-bustle counterparts, the latest census numbers show.While Toronto itself saw the number of residents aged 65 and older grow by just 13.1 per cent between 2011 and 2016, Brampton’s share of seniors increased by nearly 40 per cent during the same time frame, Statistics Canada reported Wednesday.Not far away in neighbouring Whitby, the increase was 31.3 per cent. And in Vaughan, the ranks of those aged 85 and older grew by 53 per cent — more than twice the increase among the same age cohort in the big city.Once comprising mostly sleepy villages or towns, suburbia underwent a massive transformation in the 1970s and 1980s. Urban sprawl took root. Affordable houses and sprawling backyards lured younger families like the Anthonys — and many never moved out.“My neighbour on the side, he says: ‘I’m going to stay in this house ’til I die. I’m not moving,’” Anthony says with a chuckle.As a result, when children move on and leave parents behind or elderly spouses die, suburban households become increasingly empty nests.“The suburbs now have a much older population than they used to,” says Doug Norris, chief demographer at Environics Analytics in Ottawa. “The suburbs look a lot more like the city now.”For planners and policymakers, it’s a pressing problem. Canada has an aging population as the baby boomers reach retirement age, but the public transit, services and retail options of the larger cities make them easier to navigate for the less mobile.Accessing services and amenities like grocery stores or health care in lower-density subdivisions, on the other hand, usually requires getting into a car and driving.Car dependency, as planners call it, has become an unrelenting thing. Ontario government figures suggest that about 42 per cent of people in car-dependent suburbs around Toronto won’t have a driver’s licence by 2036 — either because they are no longer fit to drive or want to avoid the cost and stress of vehicle ownership.Glenn Miller, senior associate with the Canadian Urban Institute, says there’s a growing risk that many people will find themselves stuck in the suburbs because they no longer drive.“That puts a stark problem before us,” says Miller, author of a recent paper on the phenomenon called “No Place To Grow Old.”“From a societal point of view, if you have a very large number of people who become isolated and can’t access the things they need to on a daily basis, we can’t solve the problem by building more long-term care beds.”That means the challenge for planners and policy-makers is to find ways to move services closer to where the people are, rather than to force the people to relocate. The problem, observers say, is that few places have actually taken steps to make their land-use plans more “age-friendly.”Dan Leeming, an urban planner with the Planning Partnership in Toronto, does cite a shift in thinking when it comes to new housing developments.Leeming tries to start with three basic questions: Where can I walk to in two minutes? In five minutes? In 10 minutes? People, he says, should be able to walk to a parkette in two minutes, and the bus stop in five — what he calls the building blocks of sustainability and community livability.One place that appears to be setting a forward-looking example is Markham, Ont., north of Toronto. Once more typical of suburban sprawl, Markham has been increasing its housing diversity — more townhouses and stacked housing — rather than endless rows of detached bungalows and double-storey homes.“You’re starting to get high density in suburban communities that really wasn’t there five or eight years ago,” Leeming says. “With density, you can now begin to support transit. (But) it’s going to take years for transit to get caught up.”Anthony, for his part, is well aware of what’s in store. For now, at least, he’s not worried.He has a pastoral 15-minute walk to Brampton’s city centre. When mobility does become an issue, he’s hoping the kids can help out with grocery shopping or medical appointments. In a pinch, he says, there’s the option many others don’t have: a short cab drive to the supermarket.“At the moment, we are very comfortable,” he says. “But who knows?” Rapidly aging suburbs pose a challenge to residents, urban planners alike
Women and Gender Equality commission Chair, Indranie Chandarpal during her debate presentation in the National AssemblyThe Women and Gender Equality commission has recommended, among other things, the implementation of paternal leave in the public and private sectors and the establishment of the Human Rights Commission; the absence of which has affected its work.This is contained in the commission’s seventh annual report, covering the years 2017-2018 which was recently presented to the National Assembly. The commission had visited a number of locations and consulted with various local and international organisations in the months preceding this report.The Commission is chaired by Indranie Chandarpal of the Women’s Progressive Organisation. The Deputy Chairperson is Cheryl Sampson from the National Congress of Women. The other Commissioners are drawn from the labour unions, regional women’s affairs committees, culture and ethnic groups and the Private Sector.“The commission is still constrained by the non-functioning of the Human Rights Commission, which has a number of specific mandates as is outlined under article 212 G of the constitution of Guyana,” the commission noted in its report.The commission urged that the Human Rights Commission be established with the appointment of the Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer. A total of 18 other recommendations, including the introduction of paternity leave into the law, were made.In fact, the commission wants this to be included in contracts of employment and also in collective bargaining agreements. It also urged that work places be required to provide facilities for child care.Recommendations were also made for legislative and judicial changes. The commission urged that on-going specialised training be given on the Sexual Offences Act and the Domestic Violence Act, specially catered for judges, magistrates, police officers and others involved in the criminal justice system.According to the commission, a sexual harassment policy and a harmonised code of law on women’s rights should also be implemented. In the case of the latter, the commission recommended that the code be harmonised with international laws and best practise.“Conduct training workshops and provide women with information on their legal remedies including redress for criminal offences and remedies against discrimination. Guyana should improve access to justice for rural women by having mobile courts,” the commission also urged, adding that this suggestion was made by now acting Chief Justice Roxane George.The commission also advised that Government investigate and report on conditions for women prisoners. It noted the importance of cross-checking such conditions with the standards set in the United Nations Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-custodial measures For Women Offenders.It was also advised that Articles 149 (6), 152 and 154 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana be repealed. According to the commission, these respective articles provide loopholes for discrimination against women and the denial of fundamental rights. There are also recommendations for increasing child support.At a press conference last year, British High Commissioner to Guyana, Gregory Quinn, had stated that there is an obvious lack of will in the fight against gender inequality amongst the Guyanese population.According to previous World Bank statistics on international levels of employment, the ratio of female to male labour force participation in 2013 showed that women globally are less likely than men to participate in the labour market, that is, less likely to be employed or actively looking for work.

FINANCE MINISTER MICHAEL Noonan has confirmed an increase in the rate of annual DIRT tax applied to savings interest, from 33 per cent to 41 per cent.It means those saving money will have to hand €41 back to the state for every €100 in interest they accrue.Aimed at convincing people to spend money rather than sit on large sums, the move has been criticised by accountants Grant Thornton — which says is may encourage people to try and evade the payment:“The DIRT tax on savings has now gone from 20 per cent to 41 per cent in a short period of time,” partner with the firm Peter Vale said.“Whilst the move may encourage people to stop hoarding cash and invest in more productive assets, it also increases the likelihood of greater non compliance in terms of returning details of interest income to Revenue.”Read: As it happens: The Budget 2014 Liveblog >
“We brought success to the club, we gave it everything we had when we were there. But, as I said, it’s just part of modern life; people like to do books and do books and criticise their ex-players.”Keane’s fellow pundit Lee Dixon (before quipping that he didn’t understand books) said Keane should “write a book about the book.”“Yeah, I’ll have to do another one,” the Corkman joked dryly.Here’s a taster.H/T 101GreatGoals.‘A very thin skin’: Jon Snow’s Alex Ferguson interview is more incisive than most‘Roy overstepped the mark’ – Ferguson reveals all in new book DESPITE INSISTING HE was relaxed about the situation, Roy Keane issued typically scathing criticism of Alex Ferguson after the release of his autobiography today.In the book, the former Manchester United boss said Keane ‘overstepped the mark’ with his never-broadcast MUTV interview criticising many of his team-mates in 2005.In response, Keane insisted he was less concerned with the comments made towards him. Instead questioning Ferguson’s definition of loyalty.“I’m okay, I’m quite relaxed,” he said in his punditry role on ITV.“I remember having conversations with the manager when I was at the club about loyalty, and in my opinion he doesn’t know the meaning of the word.“It doesn’t bother me too much what he has to say about me, but to constantly criticise other players at the club who have brought him a lot of success I find very, very strange – but I certainly won’t be losing any sleep over it.”Asked about Ferguson’s comments on David Beckham – “the only player I managed who chose to be famous” – Keane reiterated his opinion that the Scot should be more thankful to his players who furnished his legacy.“I don’t know how many books he’s written now, but you have to draw the line eventually and say these players have all been top servants to Man United and a lot of these players helped the manager win lots of trophies.“Imagine if we never won a trophy what he would have said.

D’un autre côté, Facebook a commencé à mettre en place un système d’identification, afin que les groupes d’utilisateurs puissent savoir qui a consulté leur compte.On savait déjà que Facebook puisait dans nos données personnelles, afin de mieux cibler les publicités. Mais saviez-vous que le réseau social épluche toutes les conversations (mails, statuts, chat) de ses 900 millions d’utilisateurs ? Que l’on se rassure, ce voyeurisme n’est pas gratuit et ne vise pas non plus à satisfaire encore plus les annonceurs. En réalité, Facebook cherche à traquer et dénoncer les criminels, plus particulièrement les pédophiles.Cette informations, c’est l’agence Reuters qui l’a révélée au détour d’un fait divers qui s’est déroulé aux États-Unis. Le 9 mars dernier, un homme d’une trentaine d’années est arrêté en Floride, après avoir été dénoncé par Facebook. Sur le réseau social, celui-ci avait donné rendez-vous à une fillette de 13 ans. L’agende de presse a alors noté que pour avoir accès à ces informations, Facebook avait dû forcément passer au crible les conversations du criminel.En pratique, il n’y a pas un agent du réseau social indiscret qui espionne chaque utilisateur. C’est un robot qui analyse les mots-clés employés dans les discussions. Celui-ci ciblera en priorité les pédophiles déjà condamnés et s’intéressera également à la différence d’âge entre les interlocuteurs, ainsi que la fréquence de leurs conversations.Dans les conditions d’utilisation Mais Facebook ne cherche pas uniquement à protéger ses jeunes utilisateurs des pédophiles. Il souhaite également dénoncer “toutes les activités criminelles”, plus précisément, “toutes les activités qui vont à l’encontre des conditions d’utilisations”.Oui, on peut effectivement crier à la délation et au flicage. Néanmoins, les utilisateurs du réseau social sont prévenus au moment de leur inscription. Pour rappel, il est indiqué dans les conditions d’utilisation que Facebook peut être “amené à partager des informations”, afin d’empêcher “la fraude ou toute autre activité illicite, pour prévenir tout préjudice corporel imminent ou protéger nos intérêts. Ceci peut inclure le partage d’informations avec d’autres sociétés, juristes, tribunaux ou encore toute autre entité gouvernementale”.Toutefois, une simple blague entre amis ou un entretien anodin avec son petit neveu ne suffit pas à déclencher une alerte, assure Facebook. “Nous n’avons jamais voulu mettre en place un système dans le lequel les employés fouillent les communications privées, donc c’est très important que nous utilisions des technologies affichant peu de faux positifs”, se défend Joe Sullivan, directeur de la sécurité de Facebook, auprès de Reuters.Vers le contre-espionnage ? Dans un autre temps, une autre nouvelle est passée inaperçue avant que les médias ne la dévoilent. Facebook compte aussi mettre en place un système permettant de connaître qui a consulté quoi sur les groupes. “Par exemple, dans votre groupe de foot, vous pourrez poster les nouveaux horaires de l’entraînement et voir ensuite qui a consulté cette mise à jour”, explique Facebook. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Dès lors qu’un utilisateur consulte un groupe, tout le monde saura que celui-ci a visité la page. Fini donc l’espionnage de ses contacts (stalking ou snooping en anglais). Jusqu’à présent, tout restait anonyme du moment que l’on ne commentait pas un message ou une photo. C’est ce qui différenciait Facebook aux autres réseaux tels que Viadeo ou LinkedIn. Pour le moment, cette fonctionnalité reste accessible uniquement pour les groupes. Mais cela pourrait aussi être bien utile pour les comptes classiques, histoire d’être mieux armé contre l’espionnage.Le 17 juillet 2012 à 16:14 • Maxime Lambert
Stay on target If you’re proficient with Raspberry Pi modding and creating your own awesome pieces of tech, here’s one project you’ll definitely want to try out. The Rock64 Media Board Computer is a $25 board that can allow you to put together an Android-based computer with 4K video playback and USB 3.0 support for ten dollars less than the Raspberry Pi can.The similarly-sized is smaller than the $35 Raspberry Pi, but it has very unique specs to help buyers make a purchasing decision. For example, the Rock64 is actually much more capable than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, with support for HDR10 and HDMI 2.0a. It includes one USB 3.0 as well, though the tradeoff is losing one USB port in comparison to the Pi 3.While the Pi itself has a lower learning curve than the Rock64, it’s overall less powerful and capable of less powerful output and whatnot, as the Rock64 runs on a quad-core ARM Cortex A53-based system on a chip, such as the Rockchip RK3328. The smallest version of it comes with 1GB for $25, and you can get 2GB for $35or 4GB for $45. It’s not out just yet, but you can get your hands on it starting July 31.If you’re looking for something small and powerful to do your bidding like this, keep in mind that you could still alternatively pick up a Raspberry Pi and simply augment it with additional parts if this board seems more difficult to deal with. There’s plenty of boards out there that you can mold to your purposes if you don’t feel you’re proficient enough to use something you’re unfamiliar with.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Former Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic is impressed with the current side but suggested Juventus are in the world of their own.The Nerazzurri have won all seven games in all competitions put together, making up for a poor start to the season. However, Stankovic thinks other Serie A teams may settle for second fiddle at the end.“It’s a good streak, I expected it sooner or later,” Stankovic told Sky.“It’s a well-constructed squad that is improving game-by-game, and which has emerged more compact from the difficulties.“Mauro Icardi is a great player, and he’s getting better and more clinical as the years’ pass.Capello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“The squad has changed and it’s important to have a deep bench. Thanks to that quality, the substitutions are always good.“All the signings were good, and just as I expected [Matteo] Politano was a good step. I’m expecting more from [Roberto] Gagliardini though, he’s an important player who can give more.“The Scudetto? I’m a realist, and Juventus are playing in another league, everyone else is playing for second place.“As for the derby, these games are unique and I can’t make a prediction. It’ll be a good game because Milan have woken up.“I hope Inter win, but it’ll be a tough game.”
Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates celebrated their Italian Super Cup success with Floyd Mayweather.Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game as the Bianconeri beat AC Milan 1-0 after the match was controversially staged at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.The former Real Madrid star scored 15 minutes after half-time, heading home Miralem Pjanic’s dinked cross to give the Juventus their first trophy of the season.It was also Max Allegri’s’ first success in the competition since 2015, having lost the two previous last Italian Super Cup games.The Juventus players were congratulated in the dressing room by boxing superstar Mayweather.Speaking post-game, Ronaldo said, according to Mirror Football :“It was a very difficult match, it’s very warm and hard to play in these conditions.”Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“We played well, created a lot of chances and obviously I am happy to have scored the winning goal.”“It was my intention to start 2019 with a trophy, I have my first title with Juve and I am very happy.”“But it is only the start, we will take it one step at a time. We’ve got this trophy, now we must keep working hard to achieve the next one.”But despite the near certainty of winning this season’s title, Ronaldo insists he and his teammates have no intention of getting complacent.“Serie A is always Juve’s main objective,” he added.“We are top of the table, but it’s a very long tournament.”“It’s going to be tough, so we need to keep working.”
“We’re not approaching it as a service magazine,” Gell added. “We’re approaching it as a general interest magazine—something you would pay for before you get on a flight.”As evidence of this new, quasi-highbrow approach, Gell pointed to one new front-of-the-book section he described as a “global ‘Talk of the Town.’”“No more ‘Top 10 Steakhouses,’” he said.“In-flight magazines have always assumed a captive audience—it has made them very lazy,” Gell said. “We all know there is going to be Wi-Fi on planes soon, it’s already starting right now—so we’re going to have to fight for attention.”Gell said his goal is to “give passengers something as sophisticated as they would find on the newsstand,” and, in turn, an editorial environment the types of high-end advertisers found there are comfortable in.But to attract those advertisers, Simon Leslie, Ink’s group publishing director, said he’s had to do something few magazine publishers have the luxury to do in a recession: turn away advertisers.“We inherited a lot of contracts we’re not renewing,” Leslie said. “Hair replacement, dating adverts—we’re removing them to attract leading advertisers.” The magazine, he said, will feel “very European.”Ad pages for Hemispheres fell 24.1 percent in 2008, according to the Publishers Information Bureau.“Of course it’s very risky,” Leslie said. “Some marketers are offering big amounts of money at us, and I’ve turned them all down. Literally people who’d slot 6- or 8- or 12-page inserts with ‘Best This’ or ‘Best That’—it’s pure cash that goes to the bottom line.”He added: “People are looking at me like I’m on a different planet, (but) we’ve taken a stance to refuse that advertising and are sticking by our guns.”And, unlike Delta Sky, which announced in April that it would be available for sale on newsstands—an apparent first for a U.S. in-flight magazine—there are no plans to distribute Hemispheres on the newsstand. “The audience we have on planes is good enough,” Leslie. In December, United Airlines selected Ink Publishing, a London-based custom publisher, to publish Hemispheres—effectively ending a deal with Pace Communications to produce its in-flight magazine.Today, Hemispheres will officially relaunch with a new design, new philosophy—and a new and editor and publisher bent on reinventing the magazine as a high-brow consumer title that passengers will actually want to read, rather than, say, a place to deposit their chewing gum.“In-flight magazines have this stigma attached to them,” new Hemispheres editor Aaron Gell, a former editor at Radar, said. “They’re considered ‘sleepy’—the content is not up to par with what you see on the newsstand.
Listen Florian MartinKalicia Minor and Daniel Perez with the Houston Health Department knock on a door in a northwest Houston neighborhood.More than 200 employees from the city’s Health Department walk through Houston’s neighborhoods twice a year to hand out booklets with city resources.That includes information on the Zika virus, family planning and phone numbers for health and housing assistance or how to report potholes, for example.The Health Department’s Porfirio Villarreal said the program also helps the city.“We make sure that we get information as, like, what type of services they need, what exactly they’re seeing in their community,” he said. “And that helps us make sure we plan correctly for future programs.”And sometimes, the city employees turn out to be first responders.On Thursday, they went to an apartment and found a senior woman who had been lying on her bathroom floor for more than a day.Kalicia Minor said they quickly got help.“Had we not gone, no one would have known that she was there,” she said.The woman was dehydrated but other than that was OK, Minor said.City employees are visiting about 8,000 homes between May 5 and 7.
