Alarmingly, a recent study highlighted concerns that most proposed approaches could lead to data management overload ineffective for the coming torrent of data.Enterprise Tech cited a recent Gartner report that examined the impact IoT will have on enterprise infrastructure. The report warned that “due to a lack of information capabilities adapted for the IoT” an estimated 25% of attempts to utilize IoT data will be abandoned before deployment ever occurs.Gartner cautions that IoT specialists who are tasked with IoT strategies and managing data governance, “are not prepared for the information-related implications of the Internet of Things.”“The IoT will challenge their capabilities, skills, processes and tools with complexity and scale, as well as new governance implications,” said Gartner which predicted information management must become a core competency in the future.Capabilities to handle data management overload are keyGartner identified a key IoT requirement in the future will be data management capabilities. Specifically, it highlights the need for an ability to manage distributed data architectures that execute governance processes while simultaneously supporting analytics.With its expectation that 25% of IoT implementations will be abandoned in the early stages, the report recommends using an “information capabilities framework” as a template for enterprises struggling with the surge in data. This approach begins by assessing the information value through metadata analysis, and then data governance rules are applied. After this, the data can be sifted and integrated into the larger enterprise system.A major challenge for IoT data manages will be reconsidering organizational storage capacity, and analyzing the conditions that users will access the IoT data.The report warns that the flood of unstructured IoT information will soon overwhelm existing data storage capacity and that existing storage can only be expanded so much.“A limited ability to cost-effectively scale existing storage approaches will create a bottleneck,” said Gartner.A major data management rethink is neededThe report also urged IT managers to rethink the traditional centralized data collection approach, due to the highly dispersed nature of IoT data generation and consumption.“With the highly distributed architectures required for most IoT solutions (many things, many places where data is generated, many platforms on which data is processed, and many consumption points to which data must be delivered), the historical approach to centralized collection of data is under pressure. Organizations must support a more distributed data architecture, because IoT solutions are inherently distributed.” Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Donal Power Tags:#data management#data security#Gartner How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua…
What happens on the field, stays on the field – a view the captains of Bangladesh and India said they share.Both Mashrafe Mortaza and Mahendra Singh Dhoni said they did not wish to make a big deal out of the collision between Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman and the India skipper in the middle of the pitch. The captains responded cautiously at the post-match briefing on Thursday regarding the issue, reports bdnews24.com.The incident occurred in the 25th over when Dhoni was facing debutant Mustafizur. The bowler had to go off the field to receive treatment after colliding with the India skipper when the latter was running for a single. India opener Rohit Sharma was also on a collision course with the pacer earlier before he managed to run around him.”The bowler (Mustafizur) thought I would move away while I thought he would. But as none of us did, we collided. This can happen in any match. It’s nothing big. I spoke to him later,” said the India captain with a smile.The 19-year-old left-arm bowler took 5 for 50 on his debut to help crush the tourists after Bangladesh batsmen posted an impressive 307.Mashrafe also said he would not drag the issue through the mud.”Things like this can happen on the field during a match. We all shake hands at the end of the day and such situations can be discussed with the on-field umpires. It’s nothing serious,” he said.
With India’s regular openers injured and an uncharacteristic green wicket prepared to unsettle Indian batsmen, the series was on the line for India’s young test team in Sri Lanka. Enter the crisis man Cheteshwar Pujara. For all his failings in England and Australia, Pujara’s fighting 145 in his comeback and the decisive test match of the series, helped India script a historic win.India Today met up with the gritty Saurashtra batsman at his newly acquired ground in the outskirts of Rajkot where his father and former Ranji player Arvind Pujara trains aspiring cricketers through the day. Father Arvind is no mean coach as Cheteshwar still falls back on him for matters of technique. His father doesn’t travel to watch Cheteshwar live from ground, simply because watching on the telly with replays and commentary helps him provide better feedback to his cricketer son.Pujara may have done the best he could of the opportunity at SSC but he would still not know if that’s enough to win back his test place and the favored no.3 spot with Vijay and Dhawan expected to be fit again and Rahane the incumbent no.3. Here’s Cheteshwar Pujara in this exclusive interview on the many battles he continues to fight to stay relevant in the modern day game..Q. You are looked my many as ‘a crisis man’. How do you take it?A. When the team needs runs, responsibility is something I have always batted with. That’s what I have always done.Q. For eight months between three series, Australia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, you waited to play a test match. How difficult a phase was that?advertisementA. Was a tough time to be honest. The kind of start I had and then the lean patch. But the main thing was self belief. The best thing came from Rahul Dravid who told me there was nothing wrong with my technique and asked me to keep believing in myself and that my time will come and it did come. Eventually when I got an opportunity in Sri Lanka and the way I batted I was quite pleased after all the hard work I had put in before Sri Lanka in the last few months.Q. Was there any technical shortcoming as well? This one particular mode of dismissal — the incoming delivery that broke your defense more than you would have liked?A. ?Sometimes you don’t want to be too harsh on yourself. The conditions were challenging. Especially if you see in England I was getting to starts and batting well. I was able to play 100 balls. If you are out of form, you can’t bat that long. So I was getting set and then getting out. There were some things I realized I had to work on and start converting 30’s and 40’s into big ones. Eventually I started working on it and it happened.Q. Happened and how. A Man of the Match winning performance. Describe to us your feeling when you completed that ton at SSC and when you got the ovation from the dressing room after that innings..A. It was really satisfying. I can’t describe it in words. The amount of hard work I was putting in, in lead up to the series and during my tough time. I thought this was my opportunity although the conditions were difficult. But there was responsibility because the series was leveled and an opportunity to contribute for team’s success. I wanted to keep my mind blank and enjoy my batting when I went in to bat. Once I was set, started playing my shots. Than we lost few wickets before which Mishra came in and we got 300 plus. Virat, Ravi and the entire dressing room came and congratulated me because I got hundred after being away from the eleven.Q. On such occasions is success on comeback even more satisfying than doing well on debut?A. There are mixed feelings. You are nervous because it’s your debut. When you are on a comeback trail, you know that you can perform at that level. But there is still pressure and nervous times because you have sat out.Q. There is a feeling more and more teams are looking for a no.3 ?who can counter attack than grind the opposition down. Is that why you had to sit out recently?A.? You have to play by the situation. You still need a batsman who can see through the new ball. Who can look to be positive and rotate the strike but still not lose many wickets early on. With my game once I am in the runs will come. Don’t think there are any issues to worry about. If I keep adding few shots to my game, it will help me in the long run.advertisementQ. Any specific shot that you are working at?A. I don’t want to disclose any particular shot. But there are a few shots I am working on and with time, I will be able to execute them as well.Q. For someone like you who plays only one format currently, is there a fear that the recall value of your last successful innings is limited. In the one dayers next, someone might hit the purple patch and the last test series performances may get forgotten?A. People still recognize the good innings you play. If you are scoring consistently in test format you should not worry too much. But if you are playing all the formats it becomes little easier I would agree to that. The way I am playing in tests is good. I am also working on my game to make it into the odi and T20 which I want to play. I will only become a better player with that.Q. We’re you surprised that no one bid for you in the last IPL?A. I wanted to play the IPL. It didn’t go as I was expecting. I ultimately got a chance to play county and a season with Yorkshire. So it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I played 4-5 games there and that practice ultimately helped.Q. Being out of odi and T20 cricket also hurts a cricketer financially. How do you cope with that? A. I would definitely like to play all formats of the game. Am trying to add few more shots to my game which will allow me to accelerate. Once I am in, in test cricket, I start playing many shots, it’s about getting used to a few things. If you look at my domestic record? in odi cricket..the amount of runs I have got and at what strike rate..there is no doubt that it will happen. Time will tell. I want to keep working hard and enjoy my gameQ. For someone who has played so much domestic cricket, how do you look at this theory gaining currency that Indian batsmen don’t handle spin as well as they once used to?A. I don’t agree Indians batsmen don’t play spin as well. Bowlers are also becoming clever who know weakness of batsmen and overseas teams have started producing spinners? and all rounders. Things don’t come as easy from overseas team as what one used to expect. As batsmen you have to respect the bowler. The thing about our Indian team now is we are always trying to improve whether it is against spin or any other aspect.Q. The next challenge is South Africa who tour well. Your battle with Steyn will be well anticipated..advertisementA. We will look at what we can improve upon. Not worry about South African team and their game plan too much. ?Steyn is a word class bowler so you have to be balanced when planning against him. I would look to bat the same way that I would against any other bowler. He would have his game plans. But I know what to expect since I have played against him.Q. You had said during your last battle against him that you were a compulsive hooker..A. I didn’t say I am a compulsive hooker but I do like playing that shot. Now I have realized which one to play and which one not to play. So there are times when you can play and other times when it has to be left alone.Q. How keen is the team to walk the talk when you all say we want to be no.1..A. We defiantly want to be no. 1 team in the world. That is something that is at the back of our mind. But have to take it one series at a time. Next up is South Africa and we would try to win the series. Sri Lankan series gave us a lot of confidence and the team was united that’s why we won.Q. Finally, there’s been a fair degree of musical chairs at no.3. Is that the position you want to make your own?A. I would bat wherever the team requires me to bat. But since I have done well at no.3, given a choice I would want to bat there. But ultimately it depends upon the demands of the situation and that’s where I would bat?.
Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin on Thursday said he is not intimidated by the Australian batsmen’s strategy of attacking him as he has the ability to handle the onslaught and pick wickets as well.”I think it’s been a batsmen’s tournament, so you’ve got to stick to your basics and hope that you put the balls in the right place. When I came back I was pretty confident, I had my plans in place and I also had the extra fielder outside the circle, which was a big advantage,” said Ashwin ahead of the second T20I in Melbourne.Ashwin felt he had the skills to come out on top when asked about Aaron Finch’s attempted charge against him in the first T20I.”…if they have a license, I have a license to pick up wickets too. And it’s not like their off-spinner has gone very kindly, he’s gone for 80 runs in all the games, that’s the way the series is.”It’s not about an off-spinner; I think everybody has gone for runs. You can target a bowler or not, it’s just a game-plan. And if that is their game-plan I’m more than happy for them to continue doing it. I think I have enough abilities to try and come out on top of it,” he explained.Ashwin returned after a break of three games in Adelaide, and he opened the bowling with Ashish Nehra. Later, he returned to bowl in tandem with Ravindra Jadeja, and helped script India’s win with figures of two for 28.advertisement”I think in the first over I bowled well (in Adelaide), there wasn’t anything wrong with the way I bowled, it’s just that I went for runs. Throughout the ODI series, be it Nathan Lyon or Kane Richardson, they have gone for 70 runs or more than that. So it’s about picking up wickets and having the confidence to bowl the good ball again and again,” he said.On whether he felt disappointed after he was left out of the playing XI during the ODI series, Ashwin felt it was not an unfair call.”The reason I didn’t play was because I didn’t win a game for India. If India had won, I would have played, as simple as that…the fact that I went for 70 runs, and then went for 60 runs, I had to sit out, and I think it’s fair enough because you have to play the right combination. As far as I’m concerned I can just work that bit harder and keep going hard at it,” he explained.India lost the ODI series 1-4. However, they did win the last ODI in Sydney and then the first T20 in Adelaide. With back-to-back wins they have finally managed to put pressure on Australia for the first time in this series.”We probably haven’t assessed the par scores well enough. In the past, 300 – or even 260 – has been a winning score when we came in 2011-12 for an ODI series here. I thought we did pretty well to post 310-320. I just think the par scores were somewhere in the 330s. And as you saw in the last games, in Canberra and Sydney, I think we would have achieved 350s. And the wickets have obviously gone flatter.”Even when South Africa came here last time, I think they achieved 310s and 320s pretty easily. So it was just a question of not calculating the par score properly,” said Ashwin looking back at the ODIs.Asked if the youngsters coming in had made a definitive impact on the squad’s morale, he said: “It’s always fun to have new people coming into the team because you try to get to understand them better. They come out with a lot of confidence, they have no expectations riding on them, they come out and express themselves.”When new people come in, it’s always interesting to watch how they go about their business. At the same time it’s also very important to allow them to express. I think our dressing room environment is very good, and whoever has come in so far in the series has been able to go on about their business without any pressure.”The tour has relatively gone without any flare-ups considering the heated exchanges in the bilateral series last season. Although there have been the odd moments, particularly the one in the first match at Adelaide between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith in the wake of the latter’s dismissal.”It’s probably a personal battle between them. I think both of them are very good competitors. They know what they are doing, and they don’t go down without a fight. It’s good to have such competition on the field. Both of them are champion cricketers, and I think it just adds to the spice of the game a little bit, so I don’t mind it at all.”advertisementKohli leads from the front Talking about Kohli’s super run of form on this tour, he said: “The way he bats, the amount of confidence he exudes on his fellow players, and the way he comes out and expresses himself, obviously that comes with the amount of performance you give on the field.”At the end of the day, what confidence you have as an individual is how you express yourself on the field. He is someone who always leads from the front and we don’t expect anything short of that from him too. If he fails, I think he’s still someone who will pick everyone up.”Getting more comfortable with conditionsAshwin also spoke about getting more comfortable with the conditions as the series went on but added that they had played good cricket despite what the ODIs scoreline says.”I think now we feel a lot more comfortable coming here. It is great competition, the players come hard at us and we do quite enjoy it. But how many times we come back here, we need to adapt to different situations. We end up playing some cricket in India, go somewhere else and then come to Australia. So it takes a bit of time, and this tour was especially challenging because we landed in Perth, then had to adjust to different time zones going to Brisbane then Melbourne, so it took another week or so for us to completely get over jet lag.”These are the challenges an international cricketer faces, and coming to Australia has always been very challenging and we enjoy it.”We have played wonderful cricket. As I said, there has been a miscalculation of 20-30 runs and the margin has been one over, so that tells you what kind of cricket we have played. We have been able to match them at every aspect of the game. It’s very unfair to say how the tour has gone and who has done better, I don’t think that is right,” Ashwin signed off.
Two major reasons for this are its late entry (only inTwo major reasons for this are its late entry (only in 2010) and a complete absence from under Rs 35-lakh market, which constitutes 40 per cent of the 33,000 units market. Also according to industry watchers, JLR commands too high a premium that goes upto as high as 20-40 per cent over most of the Merc and Audi models.When pointed out this, Suri admitted that he is not present in the under Rs 35-lakh market and also that his models command a premium. But he is categorical that he will do a repeat of XJ price cut last year saying that is not their strategy.Whether JLR will lower prices of its various models here following the massive 18 per cent plunge in the British pound on the back of the Brexit vote in June, Suri said, no, as pricing is a long-term strategy and not one or two currency specific.”We will not lower the prices massively for the sake of doing it or to ramp up volume. This is despite the fact that we did it with good result for the Jaguar XJ last year as our price was too different in the higher side.””We take a long term of the pricing as we source from across the globe and the massive currency depreciation in a few units cannot be a reason for a deeper price cut. Having said, that of course we will look at that option going forward but am sure it wont be massive as we did with the XJ,” Suri said.advertisementWhen asked about more local production to cut cost and increase volume, he said they are looking at bringing in more models to the local assembly. But was not forthcoming to add the F-Pace to the locally assembly line.The five-seater F-Pace, lauched last Thursday, is priced at Rs 68.4 lakh to Rs 1.12 crore, which is much above the industry average and its 3-litre high-end model competes with the Porche Macan and BMW X5, while the entry model has no rivals in the domestic market.JLR assembles five models at its Pune plant now-the XE, XF and the XJ sedans from the Jaguar stable and SUVs-the Evoque, Disovery Sport from the Land Rover platform. Out of this, the XF is the largest volume grosser followed by Evoque. PTI BEN ARS MKJ
Opening batsman Rohit Sharma smashed 125 to guide India to a convincing seven-wicket win against Australia in the fifth and final one-day international in Nagpur on Sunday, for a 4-1 series victory.Chasing 243, the hosts cantered to their target with over seven overs remaining as Australia’s listless bowling attack failed to pose any serious challenge.Australia lost the first three ODIs of the series to concede an unassailable 3-0 lead but regained some pride with a 21-run win in the fourth match at Bengaluru.They would have wanted to gain some momentum with another victory ahead of the three-match Twenty20 series, starting on Saturday, but a clinical performance from India barely gave them an opportunity.#TeamIndia win the 5th and final ODI against Australia by 7 wickets #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/dvInZvj2zw- BCCI (@BCCI) October 1, 2017Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, who completed his third consecutive half-century, gave India a rollicking start with an opening stand of 124 before the latter was out for 61.It was Sharma’s 14th hundred in the 50-over format and he brought it up with a massive six over mid-wicket against paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile.The stylish right-handed batsman, who had scored 71 and 65 in the last two matches, hit 11 fours and five sixes in his 109-ball knock.Sharma and captain Virat Kohli (39) added 99 in their second wicket partnership to take India to the brink of victory before both were out caught in the deep in the same over to leg-spinner Adam Zampa.Jai Hind! #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/Cc2yR9cRd5advertisement- BCCI (@BCCI) October 1, 2017Earlier, Australia failed to build on a solid start from their openers and finished on 242 for nine after winning the toss and opting to bat.David Warner followed up his match-winning knock of 124 in the last ODI with a fine 53 and added 66 with Aaron Finch in a brisk opening stand.All-rounder Hardik Pandya dismissed Finch for 32 to break the dangerous stand, who had combined in a partnership of 231 to set up Australia’s win in the last encounter.Australia were moving along nicely at 100-1 but then suffered a mini collapse, losing captain Steve Smith, Warner and Peter Handscomb in quick succession to be reduced to 118-4.India’s spinners pulled back the scoring rate with left-arm spinner Axar Patel the most devastating, finishing with three for 38.India pace duo Jasprit Bumrah (2-51) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar also bowled accurately during the closing overs to restrict Australia, and made up for their average opening spells.

A decade ago, the potential for renewable energy technologies to reach large-scale deployment was uncertain. Today, more and more solar panels dot roofs across the United States. Wind turbines supply electricity to millions of homes. Iconic American companies are demanding greater access to cost-effective, renewable energy. And this past summer, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its Clean Power Plan, a regulation that will further reduce states’ power sector emissions and drive a shift toward low-carbon energy sources.This rapid change brings questions on how electricity customers’ bottom lines will be affected. Here, we break down recent developments, common misconceptions and emerging trends in renewable energy in the United States.What does the new Clean Power Plan mean for states’ energy mixes?The new EPA rule aims to reduce national power sector emissions by about 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030. Rather than cutting emissions at individual power plants, the regulation empowers states to reduce emissions throughout their power sectors, such as by increasing their use of renewable energy or boosting efficiency. WRI research found that many states are already in a good position to achieve deep reductions in CO2 emissions from their power sectors just by following through on current energy and efficiency policies and capitalizing on existing infrastructure opportunities.Will electricity customers bear the cost of transitioning to more renewable energy?A 2014 report from Lazard showed that wind energy actually has the lowest cost per energy produced of any new generation technology in the United States – $37 per megawatt-hour (MWh) in some locations, without subsidies. Even adding additional factors such as other power plants balancing the variability of wind energy (~$1/MWh) and the cost of integrating a wind farm into the electricity system ($5/MWh) only brings the cost to $43/MWh – well below the lowest estimate for a natural gas plant. Another report developed by Bloomberg New Energy Finance shows that in 2014, wind power prices were below the equivalent electricity price in five out of seven regions.These aren’t the only studies to claim that electricity customers stand to benefit from renewable energy. Reports by the New York Independent System Operator (NY ISO), Synapse Energy Economics and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) indicate that increasing renewable energy generation has the potential to save American electricity customers tens of billions of dollars a year over the current mix of electric power options. In North Carolina, rates are expected to be lower in the first two decades of the state’s clean energy policies compared to traditional fuel sources, according to a 2013 RTI International report. In Michigan, DTE Energy lowered its electric rates in 2014 for residential customers by approximately 6.5 percent, citing low-cost wind energy as a main reason. In Minnesota, a plan for 100 MW of distributed solar was chosen over a natural gas project because the “proposal amounts to a savings of $46 million of net present value…”Are states rolling back their commitments to renewable energy?States can adhere to the Clean Power Plan by employing new technologies and drawing on existing tools, like renewable energy portfolio standards (RPS), state mandates on how much energy must be provided from renewable sources. Currently, 29 states and the District of Columbia have RPS policies in place.Recently, a discourse has surfaced around more and more states considering rolling back these standards, citing a correlation between higher electricity prices and states with an RPS in place. However, this correlation doesn’t necessarily mean that state RPS’s cause higher electricity prices. Many factors cause higher prices, including aging electricity generation fleets, transmission and distribution constraints, limited infrastructure or resources, etc.While some states have backed down from their renewable commitments, data compiled by the Center for the New Energy Economy shows that over the last three years (2015, 2014, 2013) the number of bills introduced to increase a state’s RPS have been slightly higher than the number of bills introduced to rollback a state’s RPS. Few of these bills have actually been passed, but of those that have been enacted, the same number increased a state’s RPS as rolled it back.Is investment in renewable energy up or down?Investment in renewable energy globally, and clean energy more broadly, has grown dramatically over the past decade, despite some recent claims. Investment in clean energy—which includes traditional renewable energy sources like wind and solar as well as energy storage, fuel cells and other advanced technologies —grew from roughly $60 billion in 2004 to an all-time high of more than $317 billion in 2011. Last year, global investment in clean energy grew 16 percent over 2013 levels to $310 billion, bringing us back near 2011 levels. New investment specifically in renewable energy in the United States has grown from $5.4 billion in 2004 to $38.3 billion in 2014—an increase of more than 700 percent— but is still below the high mark of $50 billion reached in 2011.The decline in investment can be attributed in part to declining cost of renewable energy. As the cost continues to fall, more renewable energy can come online for less money, so the recent leveling-off of investment isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it can indicate progress. Last year, a combined total of 100GW of wind and solar energy was added to the global electricity mix—the most ever—and it was cheaper than it was in peak investment year, 2011. In 2014 in the United States, the solar industry experienced it’s most successful year to date, installing almost 7 GW of capacity. The wind industry experienced a significant bounce-back from 2013, increasing installed capacity by more than 300 percent.Which is the cheaper option for individual customers: renewable energy or traditional electricity?It depends significantly on a number of factors, including the renewable resources at a given location, electricity prices in that area, and the type of electricity customer. However, renewable energy is increasingly the cheapest option for individual electricity customers, a reality that will apply to more and more Americans as the price of wind – which reached an all-time low in 2014 – and solar – down 9-14 percent year-over-year as of Q1 2015 – continue to fall.For example, a 2013 study from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that 40 percent of U.S. supermarkets were located in a utility service area where commercial-scale solar systems would either save the supermarket money or break even against the traditional electricity supply. Similarly, a 2014 report showed that between 30 to 60 percent of U.S. public and private (K-12) schools could save money by installing solar at a price of $2-$2.50/W, assuming a 30-year lifespan.However, these comparisons are complex and depend highly on location. Having the tools to accurately compare electricity supply options to determine the most efficient and cost-effective option is crucial for electricity customers, as well as decision-makers, policy experts, investors and regulators. WRI’s fact sheet series helps break down which options should be compared, how to do so, and additional factors that should be taken into account.What about large energy consumers in the private sector?Corporations are increasingly seeking renewable energy. In the first half of 2015, corporations signed deals for more than 1.3 GW in new wind farms and solar plants—already surpassing the 2014 number of 1.2 GW. Some recent, notable deals include Google and Walmart’s contracts for wind energy and Apple’s contract with a solar project. The rest of corporate America may not be far behind, with 60 percent of Fortune 100 companies having clean energy goals.More and more companies are demanding access to more cost-effective, clean power from their energy suppliers via WRI and WWF’s Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles. Since its launch in late 2014, the number of companies signing on to the Principles has doubled to 34 companies. In total, these companies need 20 million MW hours of renewable energy – enough to power more than 1.8 million homes—to meet their near-term goals.Have another questions about renewable energy in the United States?

Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move As skipper of Anderlecht’s U-16 side, the club that first noted his obvious potential were eager to see him commit to fresh terms in his homeland.Matazo, however, opted against penning a professional contract once reaching his 16th birthday and opened himself up to an ever-growing list of suitors.Monaco have now prevailed in that transfer scramble, with another addition made with one eye on the future.Matazo will initially link up with the academy sides at Stade Louis II, but is expected to be pushing for senior recognition before too long.A statement released by the Ligue 1 outfit on their official website read: “We are very happy to welcome Eliot Matazo to AS Monaco.“His arrival is in line with our desire to attract the best young talents of European football.L’AS Monaco est heureux d’annoncer la signature de Eliot Matazo ! https://t.co/4q1RD2KUj1— AS Monaco (@AS_Monaco) June 11, 2018“Eliot showed some very nice things in Anderlecht. He was watched by the biggest European clubs and chose the project of AS Monaco to continue his progression.”Manchester United, along with arch-rivals Manchester City, were reported to be leading the chase for Matazo at one stage, as La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid waited in the wings.They have all been left empty-handed, though, as an exciting prospect looks to enhance his career and reputation in the principality of Monaco.
BUDAPEST, Hungary — The recent protests in Hungary have given the fragmented opposition a real opportunity to work together as they challenge Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has an overwhelming majority in parliament.The protests, which started last week in the wake of new labour rules, incorporated an array of grievances on issues like limits on the free press and increasing corruption.Another rally is to be held Friday evening in Budapest.The protests have brought together a wide political coalition, from the nationalist Jobbik party to the Socialist Party, with trade unions and students also participating.Opposition lawmaker Timea Szabo said that “for now it’s a fragile co-operation, but we are working to strengthen it.”Analyst Csaba Toth said the co-operation could have long-term effects, even if immediate results may be limited.Eldar Emric And Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press

MONTREAL — Aeroplan members have more certainty about the future of their points now that the loyalty program is set to be acquired by Air Canada, but analysts say consumers shouldn’t expect to be able to redeem them at airlines its current owner recently brought on board.Aimia Inc. reached a tentative $450-million deal Tuesday to sell the rewards program to a consortium led by the country’s largest carrier, which, if closed, could end more than a year of confusion over Air Canada’s commitment to the program it founded and the value of existing points if it pulled out.Aimia chief executive Jeremy Rabe sought to reassure Aeroplan members in an email Wednesday that stated the agreement will not affect their ability to redeem points for travel deals and products, which range from vacuums to Fitbits.Aimia accepts Air Canada group’s sweetened $450-million offer to buy Aeroplan programAimia adds Air Transat, Flair Airlines to its list of new Aeroplan partnersAimia partners with Porter, but is still negotiating with Air Canada“If successfully completed, it would safeguard Aeroplan Members’ miles, provide you with continued convenience and value, permit you to earn and redeem with confidence and allow for a smooth transition to Air Canada’s new loyalty program launching in 2020,” Rabe wrote.The message echoed Air Canada chief executive Calin Rovinescu’s promise of a “smooth transition.”The Montreal-based airline aims to go ahead with plans to launch its own in-house loyalty program in July 2020, which will recognize Aeroplan points, the Air Canada website states. Its partners in the consortium include TD Bank, CIBC and Visa, suggesting that those financial institutions will also continue to have a good relationship with the Aeroplan program.Under the direction of Rabe, who started in May, Aimia had been working toward an “any seat, anywhere” strategy in which consumers could use points on multiple airlines. It had even proposed merging points with other airlines.In the lead-up to Tuesday’s deal in principle — expected to close this fall — Aimia inked partnership agreements with three smaller Air Canada rivals — Air Transat, Flair Airlines and Porter Airlines, which were slated to kick in when Aimia’s partnership with Air Canada expires in 2020.But the deal with Air Canada’s consortium appears to signal a change in focus back to seats offered on Air Canada and its Star Alliance partner airlines.Consumer affairs expert Tony Chapman speculated that Aimia’s deals with the three airlines likely include a “break-up” clause, which the Aeroplan sale could trigger at a cost to Air Canada and, crucially, close the hatch on any points redemption at Air Transat, Flair or Porter.“They were just pawns in the negotiation game,” Chapman said. “This got Air Canada to really come to the table because the last thing they want is five million users trading in their points at a rival airline.”Bringing the loyalty program back in-house 13 years after it was spun off from Air Canada means members can expect more travel deals and redemption options, Chapman said.“If you want to be the first card out of the wallet, you’re going to arm that card with even more benefits. So a real win for the consumer.“They were feeling very insecure when that partnership broke up…suddenly those points lost their currency. There was a panic,” Chapman said. “Now they’re going to go from insecure to secure.”Members who burned through their miles on big trips or pricey purchases after learning in May 2017 that Air Canada aimed to bail out on its Aeroplan partnership with Aimia may find less consolation, Chapman added.Rival loyalty programs such as Royal Bank of Canada Rewards, Scotiabank Scene, PC Optimum and Canadian Tire Corp. Triangle all give the consortium good incentive to buff up Aeroplan offers, said AltaCorp Capital analyst Chris Murray.Whether points will have the same value and precisely how they can be redeemed remains unclear, though Air Canada says “it’s business as usual” until July 2020.Currently, Aeroplan members can clock miles by flying with Star Alliance, which comprises 27 member airlines including Lufthansa and United Airlines, and pile up points by shopping on Amazon.com.TD and CIBC would not confirm that their own loyalty programs will extend past July 2020, when Air Canada’s pre-existing partnership with the Montreal-based Aimia runs out.In 2014, TD became the primary issuer of the Aeroplan Visa card as part of a 10-year deal with Aimia. American Express, which isn’t part of the new agreement, will remain an Aeroplan partner until its contract expires in June 2020. Its future with the loyalty plan is under discussion, the company says. The agreement in principle, which is supported by Aimia’s board and its largest shareholder, Mittleman Brothers, is subject to shareholder approval and other closing conditions.The consortium will assume approximately $1.9 billion in liability associated with Aeroplan miles customers have accumulated.
CLINTON, S.C. — Jace Hogan completed a 3-point play and followed with two free throws in the final minutes to give Jacksonville a late lead and the Dolphins held on to beat Presbyterian 94-88 on Tuesday night.Hogan finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds, making 12 of 15 from the free-throw line. Jalyn Hinton was 8 of 11 from the floor for 18 points and JD Notae came off the bench to score 17 points as Jacksonville (5-5) has won five of its last six games after starting the season 0-4.Presbyterian went into the break leading 49-44 and pushed its advantage to 63-54 and held the lead until Hogan scored five straight points for an 85-84 advantage with 2:43 remaining in the game. A Hinton layup gave Jacksonville an 89-86 lead with 94 seconds left to play. Notae made four free throws down the stretch to seal the win.Davon Bell had 20 points and nine rebounds to lead Presbyterian (4-5). Francois Lewis and Cory Hightower added 18 and 17 points respectively.The Associated Press
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram When 16-year-old Zack Panagiotopoulos accompanied his family on the Tabitha Foundation house building project in Cambodia last year, it opened his eyes to another world. A world of flood ravaged dwellings, active land-mines and paranoia. One where the aftermath of Cambodia’s mass genocide continues to plague the community, some 30 years on. “It’s more than just handing over a cheque,” adds Peter. “It’s about showing these people that we genuinely care about them. So when we are building their house, it’s helping them to believe in humanity again.” Peter Panagiotopoulos“It was a shock what you see over there (sic)- we went to the killing fields and you could still see the clothes of the dead coming through the ground,” he says. But it was the rewarding experience of building a house for an otherwise homeless family that has inspired both Zack and his father, Peter, to return to Cambodia this week. Working under the auspices of the Tabitha Foundation, Peter, Zack and two of Zack’s classmates from Xavier College will spending five days in Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh. There they will assist one destitute family to build their own house. “It had such an impact on my wife and the boys last time that when we got back, we decided to invite students to participate,” says Peter, who is also the school psychologist at Xavier College. “It will not only give them an awareness of developing countries like Cambodia but hopefully encourage them to initiate changes in communities down the track.” It costs just $1,500 to construct a one room dwelling for a poor family, funds which they have accumulated from generous donations, including an elderly Greek pensioner. “It’s more than just handing over a cheque,” adds Peter. “It’s about showing these people that we genuinely care about them. So when we are building their house, it’s helping them to believe in humanity again,” adds Peter. Peter highlights that the genocide by the Pol Pot regime in the late 70s is responsible for the poverty and lack of infrastructure in Cambodia today. Many families cannot afford to build a house because they have been afflicted by land-mines. Civilians live in a community of mistrust, as children who carried out the genocide are now adults who continue to live in the community. Under the detested Pol Pot regime children as young as 12 and 13 were brainwashed and forced to take part in the genocide, which killed over 1.5million Cambodians, yet as Peter points out, “they were children then how could you try them in court now?” He goes on to say that many are left homeless because of the wet season. “People live in small huts made out of palm leaves thatched together, and floors made out of dirt,” he says. “This is a problem because each year they get flooded and have to rebuild.” The house that they are to build will therefore be made on stilts two metres off the ground and with corrugated iron to keep the family safe from the floods. The Tabitha Foundation house-building program commenced in 1996, with students from the international schools in Singapore and Cambodia building two houses. The program has since expanded to include students, teachers, parents, individuals and corporate groups throughout different countries. In the 2007-08 financial year 33 Australian house-building teams that visited Cambodia built a total of 284 houses to accommodate approximately 2272 Cambodians. Tabitha believes that to break the cycle of poverty you must first help the people to believe in themselves.
ESA Satellite Avoids Potential Collision With SpaceX Starlink CraftSpaceX’s Starhopper Aces Final Test Flight in Texas Stay on target Looks like white and gray are the new orange. NASA offered a glimpse of the sleek, new spacesuits astronauts will be wearing for SpaceX’s Demo-2 mission to the International Space Station as part of the agency’s Commercial Crew Program.The reveal was part of a training event at the SpaceX facility in Hawthorne, California for prelaunch operations with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, NASA said last week.Astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley are assigned to take the first flight on SpaceX’s Demo-2 mission. (Photo Credit: NASA)The training provided an opportunity for the integrated team to dry-run all of the activities, procedures, and communication that will be exercised on launch day when a Crew Dragon spacecraft launches on a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A in Florida.SpaceX CEO Elon Musk first showed the spacesuit design on Instagram in 2017. In Musk’s photo, the spacesuit was modeled by a person standing next to a Crew Dragon spacecraft.“It definitely works. You can just jump in a vacuum chamber with it, and it’s fine,” Musk said in the 2017 post. “Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function.”The spacesuit was designed by Hollywood costume designer Jose Fernandez, who created the superhero costumes for Wonder Woman and Captain America: Civil War.While astronauts on SpaceX missions will don the white and gray suits, astronauts heading into orbit aboard Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft will be sporting bright blue spacesuits. NASA unveiled those suits in a vide (see below) in 2017.During the training at the SpaceX facility, Behnken and Hurley performed suit-up procedures alongside the SpaceX ground closeout team and suit engineers using the same ground support equipment, such as the seats and suit leak check boxes, that will actually be used on launch day.Last month, the astronauts practiced Crew Dragon rendezvous and docking to the International Space Station. The simulations help to ensure they safely and successfully perform the planned operations of the actual spaceflight, with opportunities to fine-tune their procedures and gain experience on how to solve problems should they arise.Behnken and Hurley are assigned to take the first flight on SpaceX’s Demo-2 mission, which will be the Crew Dragon’s chance to demonstrate a complete mission with astronauts, from launch to landing, and will put SpaceX on its way to earning certification from NASA’s Commercial Crew Program. Once the spacecraft is certified, SpaceX can begin regular flights to the space station with long-duration crews aboard.In March, SpaceX’s Demo-1 mission proved the Crew Dragon and its Falcon 9 rocket worked as designed. With the Demo-1 mission, the Crew Dragon became the first commercial spacecraft built to carry humans to dock with the space station. Its subsequent safe reentry and splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean was an important step toward proving the spacecraft is ready to carry humans onboard.More on Geek.com:Watch: SpaceX Boat Catches Rocket Nose Falling From SkySpaceX’s Cute ‘Zero-G Indicator’ Sells Out After Space DebutWatch: SpaceX Rocket Generates Sonic Booms in Jaw-Dropping Video
The U.S. House today passed a bill to allow Alaska Natives to sell handicrafts that include the feathers of migratory birds. Alaska Congressman Don Young said on the House floor the Migratory Bird Act already allows Alaska Natives to harvest migratory birds.Download Audio“What we have today is a bizarre policy that allows Alaska natives to hunt kill, consume and also use nonedible parts in handicrafts items, but prohibits them from selling these handicrafts,” Young said.Federal authorities haven’t always enforced the law, but two years ago pursued a case against a Tlingit carver from Juneau. Archie Cavanaugh agreed to pay a $2,000 fine after he was caught trying to sell two wood headpieces online that included flicker and raven feathers. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Young, passed the House by voice vote. Sen. Lisa Murkowski sponsored a similar bill that’s pending in the Senate.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Passenger arrested for molesting Air Vistara cabin crew member Air VistaraFacebook/AirVistaraFull-service carrier Vistara has received the government’s approval to start services on international routes. The decision taken by the government just before the election code of conduct kicked in will make Vistara, a joint venture between the Tata Group and Singapore Airlines, the fifth Indian airline to reach foreign shores.”Vistara has been granted permission to operate on international routes, following suggestions from the Group of Ministers formed to look into the issue. The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MCA) has conveyed the same to Vistara on March 8,” a senior official aware of the development told the Business Standard. Following the go-ahead, the airline has sought permission to fly between Delhi and Colombo seven days a week. The route is currently served by Air India and Sri Lankan Airlines through a non-stop flight, while other carriers such as IndiGo, Jet Airways and Spice Jet connect southern cities like Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai to the capital of Sri Lanka.When India’s third full-service carrier launched, it did so with its eye on the opportunities in the international market. More than three years later, Vistara remains a solely domestic carrier, thanks to Indian regulations”Vistara has sought bilateral rights to Sri Lanka and slots from Delhi Airport for the same. They will operate the flight with Airbus A320 aircraft,” an industry source told the newspaper. An ongoing probe into the dealings of another Tata Group-owned airline—Air Asia India—had delayed the approval to Vistara. The Central Bureau of Investigation is probing Air Asia India for lobbying and bribing government officials to obtain international flying permits. The government had taken an unprecedented step of forming a committee of five Cabinet-ranked ministers headed by Arun Jaitley to decide if Vistara should be permitted to fly on international routes. In normal circumstances, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation is the final authority for granting an international flying permit to an airline. The Costly DelayThe delay in approval helped low-cost carriers upend Vistara’s business plans. Initially, the airline had planned to fly to Thailand but flying rights to the country are on the verge of exhaustion due to the deployment of new flights by IndiGo and GoAir. After reaching the requisite 20 aircraft fleet size, Vistara applied to the Ministry of Civil Aviation for an international permit in June and planned to start flights to popular cities in Thailand and Maldives by the end of 2018.Though the airline’s Chief Executive Officer Leslie Thng brushed aside the delay saying the impact had been minimal, industry experts flagged the issue as ‘policy logjam’. “When India’s third full-service carrier launched, it did so with its eye on the opportunities in the international market. More than three years later, Vistara remains a solely domestic carrier, thanks to Indian regulations,” aviation consultancy firm CAPA told the newspaper.
Last night’s Rose bowl classic between Penn State and USC proved that both teams can play with anybody. This morning, people are lamenting the fact that Penn State and USC were excluded by the College Football Playoff committee. Colin sees this as a predictable knee jerk reaction to a great game, but it doesn’t change his opinion that conference champions shouldn’t automatically get in the playoff, and bad losses, like USC and Penn State both have, shouldn’t be ignored by the selection committee.“That was one of the best college football games I’ve seen in my life. It’s in my Top 5.”The other story coming out of the Rose Bowl is that USC quarterback Sam Darnold looks like a future NFL franchise quarterback. With Darnold, Colin sees intangibles that jump off the charts. Last night, Darnold put on one of the all-time great performances by a college football quarterback in a big game. Darnold looks like he has the potential to be the best Trojan signal caller in the history of the program, by a lot.“I think he’s the best quarterback I’ve ever seen at USC.”Nick Saban took an unprecedented step of relieving Lane Kiffin from his duties as offensive coordinator before the national championship game against Clemson. Colin says this move was not a knee jerk reaction by Saban, because he doesn’t do knee jerk.Saban clearly had an axe to grind with Kiffin, whom he berated on the sidelines during blowout wins, and disrespected at press conferences throughout the year. Only Saban knows the actual reason, but this was calculated to make Kiffin look bad. There’s no question about it.“I think it was Saban’s way to punish Lane Kiffin, for whatever reason it is.”Guests:Clay Travis – Founder of Outkick the Coverage joins the show to discuss the USC/Penn State Rose bowl thriller, explain why he thinks both teams should have been in the playoff, why both teams will be favorites to make the playoff next year, and why USC quarterback Sam Darnold is a transcendent talent.Eric Mangini – Former Browns and Jets head coach is in-studio to discuss Lane Kiffin being let go by Alabama, which NFL coaching opening he thinks is the best, why any coaching opening without a quarterback is set up to fail, and if the Patriots could trade Tom Brady this offseason.Peter Schrager – Fox Sports NFL Insider joins the show to discuss the controversy in New York over Odell Beckham and the Giants’ receivers partying all night on South Beach, where the 49’ers could go with their coach and GM search, if Kyle Shanahan could be a fit in Denver, and if Sean Payton could still end up in L.A.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider joins the show to explain what LeBron needs to do to surpass MJ, if the Lakers need to move off D’Angelo Russell, if they have the pieces to pull off a trade for a superstar, and why Mike D’Antoni is the NBA coach of the year so far.Clay Helton – USC Head Football Coach joins the show to discuss his team’s thrilling Rose Bowl win over Penn State, his thoughts on Freshman superstar quarterback Sam Darnold, if he’s slept yet, and his appreciation for the history of the two programs.
